Had a tremendous time reading at Bad Language. Here’s a picture to prove it. This time, I’m not lurking behind the microphone in an attempt to hide. I enjoyed it, must be getting better…
Lovely line up of own mic readings and they’re doing it all again on 25th September. Get down to one if you’ve never been before. The organisers, Dan and Nicki, are lovely.
So what’s next?
Well, finish the second novel which will actually be more like my fourth, but who’s counting.
Also this, which looks brilliant basically:
Unthank Books – Off the Shelf at Black’s
30 AUGUST 2013
POSTED IN BOOKS AND POETRY
Next Guild literary event – 16 September in London
The next Writers’ Guild Off the Shelf event at Black’s in Soho is a special day with Unthank Books and its writers. Guild members and othersd are invited to hear readings by the chosen authors, followed by a delicious two-course lunch at Blacks members’ club in London’s Soho. The featured writers are: lecturer in creative writing at the Open University Ashley Stokes (Touching the starfish, Unthank’s launch publication, and The Syllabus of Errors); musician, editor and writer Nick Sweeney (Laikonik Express), and writer and lecturer in creative writing in the North West of England Sarah Dobbs (Killing Daniel).
Unthank Books was launched in early 2010 in response to what it saw as a “particularly egregious spell of awful or no literary fiction being published by the mainstream houses and its concomitant deleterious effect on aspiring literary authors”. Since then, it has published 15 books, including its annual Unthology of shorter prose, twice-staged UnLit, The Unthank Literary Festival, and delivered numerous courses in poetry, prose and screenwriting through the Unthank School of Writing.
11am-2.30pm, 16 September
Blacks, 67 Dean Street, Soho, London
Price: £25 (includes two-course lunch, tea/coffee)
