Main Street Writers is the bookstore's open writing club, where writers of all ages, levels, and genres are invited to convene and dedicate 1.5 hours to honing their craft.
Main Street Writers meetings are facilitated by writer Aimee Keeble. Born in London and raised in America, Aimée Keeble has been writing short stories and poems since she was a child. Her work has been published by All Those Things Left Unsaid, Scalawag, the Lighthouse Journal, Forward Poetry, Killer and a Sweet Thang, Southlight, The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, Oh Comely, The Medusa Review, and Ink, Sweat, and Tears.
Her poetry has been exhibited at Reverberation in London, a project inspired by The Beatles seminal album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. She has exhibited her work at Flint Gallery in Norwich, theprintspace in London, and the Superette Gallery in Paris as a part of Never Turn Back, a photographic project headed by Dean Chalkley. The two have collaborated on a publication titled One which focuses on the idea of subculture and is available through Antenne Books. Aimée is currently completing her Master of Letters in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow. She is the grand-niece of Beat writer and poet Alexander Trocchi.
The Main Street Writers also host a semi-regular writers’ open mic night called The Beat Goes On. A selection of pieces from the last open mic are published in this online collection: https://www.flipsnack.com/thebeatgoeson/the-beat-goes-on.html
