is up on Once upon a Quarantine
read by Heather Bleasdale
Lots of other stories by famous authors and read by famous actors. So that’s our Carrie famous too now!
Can’t let this go by without a little something.
Here are some videos of readings from our anthology, Liberty Tales.
Friday 20th October (Tomorrow!) at 7pm Anna Fodorova is reading part of her story Fruit of the Sea from Liberty Tales at London Writers’ Eclective at the Sun Tavern on Long Acre in Covent Garden. (FREE)
and Good Wolf People are also performing The Old Woman From Friuli at Stanley Halls on Saturday 28th at 1pm (£3)
It has been a busy time, another set of videos I’ve only just had time to edit and post:
We took part in the Archway With Words Festival back in September, reading from a variety of books at Archway Library. (5 books, 5 authors, for our 5th anniversary…)
Katy Darby, The Horror, the Horror, Stations
We are still testing live video uploading ahead of DUSK. We have a YouTube channel, but we can’t upload live to it unless we have 100 subscribers. So it would help if you could get on over to YouTube and subscribe – we can’t even test without this. You will find lots of lovely video up already to amuse you. We have another channel specifically for Solstice Shorts which we’ve never really used, but we might need both so if you could subscribe to that too that would be great!
We can do Facebook but can’t do anything with the video once it’s there. We’ll be trying that again TOMORROW at Shoreham WordFest where we are reading from Liberty Tales, and singing a few protest songs.
