Live video uploads

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.

The Old Woman from Friuli, a cancellation and a new date with Good Wolf

We’ve decided to cancel the reading at Shoreham Library on Saturday 14th October due to lack of take up. Sorry to disappoint anyone who was planning to come.

But we have a reading by Good Wolf theatre company at Stanley Halls in South Norwood on Saturday 28th October at 1pm as part of their Story Time day for younger children. From what they say they seem to be planning to semi-stage it, I am so disappointed I can’t get there to watch, but they’ve promised to video it! Please go along so you can tell me how it went!

There will be a pop up bookshop which will have all our children’s books on sale.

£3 per child per session. Book via Stanley Halls – last time they had an event it filled up in 15 mins, so advisable to book!

We hope to collaborate some more with Good Wolf, so watch this space. (Such an appropriate company to work with, given the wolf theme coming up in book three of The Naming of Brook Storyteller: Wolftalker)

Liberty-on-Sea

In October we are off to the Shoreham Word Fest with a Liberty Tales/ Songs of Protest evening at the Yacht Club on Thursday 12th at 19.30 (£10) with Elinor Brooks, Greg Page and Carrie Cohen reading poetry and Carolyn Eden Cherry Potts  & Liam Hogan reading prose, and some of Vocal Chords singing. We will be teaching two very simple protest songs!

Tickets still available book NOW.

 

Live lit events coming up

Being busy people we can’t always arrange our own events as regularly as we might like, so we are very happy when we get asked to take part in other people’s.

Next Friday 22nd September 7pm Liam Hogan is reading from Happy ending Not Guaranteed at the launch of London Writers’ Eclective at Waterstones 11 Islington Green, N1 2XH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday 27th September 18.15 we are at Archway with Words at Archway Library, Hamlyn House Highgate Hill N19 5PH where Liam is reading again, alongside Katy Darby, Cherry Potts, Carolyn Eden, and Wendy Gill

On Saturday 30th September we are at Free Verse Poetry Book Fair at Conway Hall where we will have a stall all day, and are reading in the Red Lion Square garden cafe at 4.30, with Jeremy Dixon, Lisa Kelly and Sarah James.Experience a flush of openness in San Francisco, a long day on a till, an even longer night in a hotel, and time shifting about the three occupants of a house.

In October we are off to the Shoreham Word Fest with a Liberty Tales/ Songs of Protest evening at the Yacht Club on Thursday 12th at 19.30 (£10) with Elinor Brooks, Greg Page and Carrie Cohen reading poetry and Cherry & Liam reading prose, and Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd and some of Vocal Chords singing. We will be teaching two very simple protest songs!

Followed on the Saturday Morning at 11am with a Children’s event in the Library, (Free) with The Old Woman From Friuli by Ghillian Potts being read by Tash Fairbanks, and a kind of demonstration of woodcut printing from Cherry Potts, because we couldn’t get hold of Ed Boxall, the illustrator of the book, to join us. No sharp objects will be let near children!
