Interview with poet Joy Howard, author of Foraging, who also runs a small press, Grey Hen, so we wander off the point a bit. This is a phone conversation with added images, the sound isn’t great but we’ve included it for completeness. Only a couple of days left until the end of the Arachneversary celebrations!
You can buy Foraging from our webshop, but if you want that August discount, you need to get a move on, it expires 31st August at midnight. Use the code ARACHNEVERSARY at the checkout.
Continuing our Arachneversary videos, Liberty Tales, which celebrated the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, starting as an event, but too good to leave it at that, so we made a book too, and toured it across the South of England from Essex to Bath. So lots of archive video of readings!
Editor Cherry Potts talks about Departures, an anthology of short fiction and poetry, and the events that inspired it – The Story Sessions, the live literature event that ran for three years. Complete with archive footage from the story sessions, and video from the launch of the book.
Cherry Potts talks (to Ness Owen, briefly) about the most ambitious Solstice Shorts Festival ever – Dusk – A Wave of Words Across the UK travelling at the Speed of Dark as dusk fell, to twelve sites from Ellon in Aberdeenshire, to Redruth in Cornwall on the shortest day of the year.
As part of our Eighth Anniversary celebrations, here’s Math Jones talking to editor Cherry Potts about his epic collection, in poetry and flash and monologues, The Knotsman, set in a mythical 17th Century England during the civil war. the knotsman unravels knots and unravels problems, and sometimes hearts.
The Knotsman is on sale, with many other books at our Webshop, throughout August. Just use the discount code ARACHNEVERSARY at the checkout.
