On Thursday 13th December, you are invited to City Writes Autumn 2018, at The Northampton Suite, City University, Northampton Square, EC1V 0HB
Arachne Press’ Cherry Potts and Katerina Watson will be reading their respective Solstice Shorts stories, The Midwinter Wife from Longest Night, and Threshold from Dusk. We will be supported by Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd singing Cold Time from Longest Night, and there will be readings from the winners of this term’s writing contest, Meera Betab, Angelita Bradney, Kate Henderson and Debz Hobbs-Wyatt.
With the 5th Anniversary celebrations heading into view I was thinking about the thank you speech, and like the Oscars it is in danger of going on, and on. And on. So I thought I’d blog it instead, a section at a time.
What would we do without our acting friends? Whether it is spending a riotous time at Solstice Shorts, stepping up to sing with the choir at LSE Branching Out, joining us on long distance train journeys to unfamiliar spots, or running courses for our authors so they can strike out bravely onto a stage, they have been a mainstay of our live literature stream, performing in bookshops, theatres, libraries, cafes, pubs, gardens and streets!
A plethora of events coming up. Thanks to the Arts Council support, from the 16th November on we are out and about with Liberty Tales, and The Story Sessions season at The Brockley Deli kicks off too! Meet authors, listen to stories and poems, (sometime read by actors) and, at The Story Sessions, join in!
Lewisham Libraries have been good friends to us, and provided a buffet and everything! There are more videos to come, and sound files from the event at Clapham Books on Thursday.
If you like what you see here, head over to our events page for details of more readings in March and April, in Beckenham (Thursday 3rd March, that’s next week) , Kings Cross (Gays the Word 24th March), Earls Court ( Brompton Library 14th April) and Hastings (Polari on Sea)…
or to our SHOP to buy a copy, or to your local bookshop, of course.
