And… we have a show!
Planning a live event, especially if it’s free and you therefore have no budget, is a bit too exciting sometimes. Someone offers you a great story, then the author can’t make it after all, so you try to find an actor who will work for their fare and a book and a drink, at the same time as trying to decide whether it’s fair to promote the amazing story which you might not be able to read…
but everything falls into place eventually.
So we ARE reading Courttia Newland’s Sound Boys from the Saboteur2016 Best Anthology Award Winning Being Dad anthology on Wednesday 1st June at the Childhood The Story Sessions for Brockley Max, at the Brockley Deli.
Big thank you to Chukwudi Onwere for stepping in and to Carrie Cohen for making the introduction.
Also reading: Carrie Cohen – Helen Morris‘ Simon le Bon Will Save Us – with special singalong audience opportunities for those of you who remember the 80’s (If you want to practice, get your larynx around Duran Duran’s Rio in particular, and maybe Human League Don’t You Want Me, Baby?)
And reading their own work, Barbara Renel Blow Hole, Liam Hogan (also fresh from an award – The Roswell Award – for SciFi Short Story) Bullet-proof Papoose and Kate Foley The Don’t Touch Garden
and of course …. YOU… you can join in with 100 words on the theme of Childhood – fiction or poetry, bring it with you or write it in the interval, we’ll bring paper and pens.
Get there early and get some fab food and drink, and to be sure of a seat – we are kicking off at 7.30.
