Are there words twitching in the back of your throat? Letters searing scars on your tongue and sending spasms through your wisdom teeth? Is there scribble behind your lips and ink on your soft palate? Are you Cottonmouth? Get ready to spit diction.

Cottonmouth is a performance-based project by and for emerging wordsmiths. Held monthly, the night convenes spoken-worders, poets, sound artists, playwrights, new-media-welders and basically anyone with narrative art tickling their epiglottis. Accompanying the Cottonmouth nights is a national podcast and a publication. Watch this space.

Cottonmouth convenes on the first Tuesday of each month at The Bird, 181 William Street, Northbridge.
