The SO: Write Mayflower Young Writers are showcasing their work at Southampton Central Library on July 22nd with author of The Dictionary of Dads, Justin Coe.

Students competing in the Wessex Schools Poetry Slam will also be invited to share their work at this event.

Performance Poet Justin Coe launches his much anticipated collection of children’s verse – The Dictionary of Dads, an A-Z of over fifty different kinds of Dads illustrated by Steve Wells (Otter-Barry Books). Justin will perform a series of poems from the book – plus work in progress from his new show Young Herbert and The Horrors. With musical backing, illustration, competitions and optimum opportunities for joining in (especially for Dad) the show promises to be great fun for everyone (even Mum).
