nearly events and ifsoflo updates

I've not been updating the blog lately but putting more on the IFSOFLO facebook page and putting energy into IFSOFLO.COM, which is our new space for collaborative reading and writing, literature happenings homecooked by if:book. Meanwhile I'm working hard on Nearlyology.com stuff.

Here's more on IFSOFLO events for the Crouch End Festival:

NEARLYOLOGY
AT THE ROCKING CHAIR CAFÉ 
16 Park Road, Crouch End, N8 8TD

THURSDAY 13th JUNE 7 – 9pm 
FREE 
An evening of stand up short talks starting with the words “I nearly..” 
“I nearly… led my whole life as a lie”
“I nearly… didn’t set fire to the wedding photos”
“I nearly… made a movie and I can describe it exactly”
“I nearly… really met Bob Dylan”

Throughout the festival
Nearlyologist and author Chris Meade will be gathering stories of the things we nearly did that we’d like the world to know about.
Call in at the Rocking Chair Café or Hornsey Library Café to give him your nearly and collect a free badge

IF you’d like to tell your nearly, email chris@ifbook.co.uk

NEARLYWRITING NEARLYDANCING
TUESDAY 11th JUNE. 11 - 3. MEET IN THE LIBRARY CAFE

A workshop by writer Chris Meade and dancer Jia-Yu Corti

Share things that nearly happened to you and turn them into stories and poems, then work with Jia-Yu on using movement to inspire, explore and perform. Open to writers prepared to move about a bit and dancers wanting to write things down.

Free event but places very limited. Please email chris@ifbook.co.uk for more details.

Chris and Jia-Yu met when they were participants in the Turner Prize nominated These Associations by Tino Sehgal at Tate Modern last summer and collaborated on NEARLY, a performance at the Chisenhale Dance Space and the Live Literary Lounge at Kings Place as part of Jewish Book Week.
Chris runs IFSOFLO PRODUCTIONS, makers of literature happenings.
