Scents and smells for character, atmosphere and inspiration
…what soft incense
Explore writing using all the senses, but particularly smell, with Cherry Potts, author of Mosaic of Air and Tales Told Before Cockcrow, editor of London Lies, Stations and Lovers’ Lies and owner of Arachne Press.
Bring a large notebook and lots of pens, and expect to write. Weather permitting a stroll about the garden may be included. If you have a scent that means a lot to you, (and it is portable) bring it with you!
Suitable for all levels of experience, and for fiction writers and poets.
As part of the Keats Festival we are reading from Lovers’ Lies, and Weird Lies (which is due out in September 2013)
Focusing (loosely!) on the elements of Keats’ life not directly involved in poetry: science, medicine, and nature, Arachne Press bring you stories of the Garden of Eden, conversations with tadpoles, a meeting of minds across disciplines, and love, repression and an old-fashioned approach to doctoring.
It’s official publication day for Lovers’ Lies! A chance to buy your beloved something more original than a box of chocolates for Valentine’s day
We had a full house on Sunday at Keats House for the launch, (great venue by the way) we ran out of books and I had to do the publishing equivalent of ‘family hold back’ and ask the authors to wait for their free copies (they’re coming, promise). Lots of authors readand a fun time was had by all –
Arachne Press’ next publication Lovers’ Lies is out at the end of January, and we are celebrating the launch with readings at 2.30 on Sunday 27th January 2013 at the suitably romantic venue, Keats House, in Hampstead. (Keats Grove, NW3 2RR) The house is where John Keats lived and fell in love with the girl next door, Fanny Brawne.
