Haunting Tales for Halloween

Halloween TalesA6We are hosting a free live literature event at London’s first co-operatively owned pub, The Ivy House. A beautiful traditional pub building almost next to Nunhead cemetery… Join VG Lee, David McGrath, David Mildon and Cherry Potts for an interactive evening of spooky live literature – think folk club with books. The audience is invited to contribute 100 word on-theme flash fiction (or poetry – but still 100 words) in the flash from the floor spot. Books sales in the interval – free ‘Books are my Bag’ bags to haul away all your Halloween book treats.

Possibility of a ‘work in progress’ spot for a brave author who would like to try out a fresh piece of writing on an audience. if you are interested in this slot, or in being an invited author at this or a future event, get in touch.

This is the first of two booked events at the Ivy House, if it goes well it could become a regular fixture. Come along and support the first community owned pub in London, and live literature!

Wednesday 30th October 7:30 for 8, hearses at 10.
