Haringey Literature Live (A Celebration of Frogmore Papers)

Join us to celebrate one of the geatesr of the ‘little magazines’, which started in 1983, and for many years was edited just moments from the Chocolate Factory, on Vernon Road. Poets, fiction writers and editors will gather to present the best of Frogmore Papers. Wonderful back issues and poetry pamphlets from the Frogmore Press will be on sale, and Founding Editor Jeremy Page will be there to answer any questions you might like to throw at him!



Karamel Music Club

May sees the arrival of a couple of new faces, as well as an old friend. 17 year old George Wilding has been causing something of a stir in the industry, with Sony offering a development deal on the spot when they heard him. With consistent spot plays on BBC Radio 2 and 6, as well as local radio. George has all the makings of a Syd Barrett meets David Bowie age 17 – tall and elegant, quietly confident, lyrics beyond his years (check out ‘My Backwards Head’, which he wrote when he was 14) and a maturity chord wise that astounds – where his contemporaries slap on a capo and play the usual chord blocks, George is filling in the three passing notes in between. You’re going to love him. Also making an appearance are an outrageously fun and 70’s-tastic ‘Itchy Teeth’ – superbly tight rhythm section, chord changes that would have supertramp dancing along in a T-rex T-shirt while the kinks crackled out of a transistor radio. Great performers, and sure to be a tremendously good night. If you then add into the mix solo artist and former seahorses frontman (and great pal) Chris Helme – a man who himself knows a thing or two about the 70’s, as well as having laid claim to a number one album in both the UK and Japan – then you get the idea. And as always, it’s free. Our way of inviting the local haringey community in to our world of ethical promotion and the supporting of great, original music.

Haringey Literature Live – Poetry Workshop with Jehane Markham


– Ever wondered if there’s a poet or a novelist in you?

– Are you a writer in need of inspiration?
– Perhaps you want to write, but you’re afraid you have nothing to say?
– Perhaps you think about how much you used to love writing, and it makes you sad?

– Perahps you love the idea of writing, but feel you’re too old, or too young, or you’re not educated enough, or… or something!


If any of these apply to you (and even if none do), come along and join our Haringey Literature Live Writing Workshops! From March 2014 we are offering mini-courses in Creative Writing, on Wednesday mornings in the Long Lounge at Karamel.


Courses will run in three-week blocks, bookable in advance, and are aimed both at people who are completely new to writing, and also at more experienced writers who may wish to develop their ideas in a friendly and relaxed, small-group setting.


Time: 10am to 12.30pm, Wednesdays

Place: Long Lounge, Karamel Restaurant, Chocolate Factory 2, Coburg Road, N22 6UJ

Price: £45 for a three-Wednesdays course (includes hot drinks & biscuits in the break!)




The Nuts of Bolts of Poetry, with Jehane Markham

12th, 19th and 26th March, 10am-12.30pm, Karamel


How does form effect meaning? In these workshops we will endeavor to find out by looking at different forms such as the prose poem or the sonnet to see how they might suit a particular theme or idea. Using gentle writing exercises, we will look in some detail at different aspects of poetic writing, including rhythm, metaphor, line length and sound.  With contemporary poets as our guides, we will navigate some of the bear-traps that await the would-be poet and go forward unafraid of expressing our ideas freely through poetry.
