and By the Hush (Paddy’s Lament)
It’s taken a while to get these up, sorry – here are videos of the three stories from The Refugees Welcome Anthology read at our Asylum themed The Story Sessions for Brockley Max.
Cherry Potts, Queues
More of Cherry’s writing can be heard live TONIGHT at Liars’ League London and on Friday at Story Fridays in Bath.
Snipets from the other two stories, as we have no claim on the copyright:
Jane Roberts, The Etymology of Happiness read by Katy Darby
and Oscar Windsor-Smith This England read by Alix Adams
more videos to come from our two Brockley Max events…
Kate will be reading her own work TONIGHT Wednesday 1st June at our second The Story Sessions for BrockleyMax: Childhood – At The Brockley Deli, 14A Brockley Cross, SE4.
We hope Jailbreak will be published by us in the near future as part of the Liberty Tales anthology
Saturday 28th May 3.30pm in St Hilda’s Church, Courtrai Road Crofton Park SE23 1PL: Asylum – stories and poems and music around the concept of safety/sanctuary or the need for it. This is partly to showcase the Refugees Welcome anthology (not published by us, raising funds for Red Cross Refugee work) and will include stories from the book. Stories will be read by a mixture of authors and actors – where the author’s name is in bold, they are reading.
Refreshments avilable from 3pm. (if you have the stamina there’s a singing workshop with Various Voices on the same theme at 6:45 in the undercroft.)
The line up:
Story Queues from Cherry Potts, from the Refugees Welcome anthology
Story This England by Oscar Windsor-Smith from the Refugees Welcome anthology Read by Alix Adams
Poems Roots and Jail Break by Kate Foley* read by Katy Darby
Story Etymology of Happiness by Jane Roberts from the Refugees Welcome anthology read by Katy Darby
and of course …. YOU!
The Story Sessions is run like a folk club – headliners, support acts and floor spots – you can join in with 100 words of fiction or poetry on theme. Come prepared or write something with a cup of tea between 3-3.30, pens & paper will be provided!
*Kate Foley WILL be reading her own poetry at the NEXT The Story Sessions on 1st June at The Brockley Deli. Theme Childhood.
Saturday 28th May 3pm in St Hilda’s Church, Courtrai Road Crofton Park SE4: Asylum – stories (around 1500 words) or poems around the concept of safety/sanctuary or the need for it. This is partly to showcase the Refugees Welcome anthology (not published by us!) but we want to include other work so send us stuff.
Wednesday 1st June 7.30 at The Brockley Deli 14A Brockley Cross London, SE4 1BE
(we went down a storm there last year) stories (around 1500 words) or poems on the theme of Childhood. Kate Foley will be headlining this with her adoption poems The Don’t Touch Garden, but we’d like some variety. We already have stories lined up from Liam Hogan and Helen Morris – so get your oar in!
