Hootenanny of Pain


The long-running
is happening again this weekend!

This semi-monthly series is dedicated to showcasing the best in literary talent and fostering the artistic community. For several years, it has featured poets, novelists, journalists, folk and blues bands, fundraisers, open mics, and book launches.

The show includes a featured reader or performer, followed by an open-mic session -- so if you've got any poetry, fiction or spoken word that you'd like to share with the world, bring it along. Or, you can just come to watch and listen.
And this Sunday's feature will be:


Jeff Cottrill is a Toronto-based fiction writer and spoken-word performer whose stage act uses elements of performance poetry, comedy, theatre and storytelling. With a satirical, often darkly comic flavour, he likes to make his audiences laugh, cringe, or (preferably) both. He has also written film reviews, arts articles, and even (gasp!) relationship self-help. Jeff has featured in dozens of Toronto literary shows as well as in several U.S. cities and even in London, England. In 2005, he released his first CD, Cracktastic!, and he has also authored two chapbooks. Jeff likes movies, travel, and puppies. He is currently working on his fourth or fifth attempt at a first novel. More info at www.myspace.com/jeffcottrill.
