Welcome to another engaging evening of thoughts and ideas, of discussion and inebriation, and of getting drunk and pretending it counts as ‘being cultured’.Our invited speakers at ‘Riot’ are:
Benjamin Judge Writer of short, very short and very very short stories, and the ‘brains’ behind Stegorcrater Press.
Jenny Oliver recently-published GRIST anthologist telling true tales of a life lived in Chapeltown against a backdrop of the ‘81 riots The band are Radio Partizan, ‘anger fuelled political rampage with the use of non-standard English’.
As ever, there’ll be a writers’ open mic. Flash fiction, short stories, true tales, and poetry are all welcomed. Please keep your contributions at 7 minutes or under, and get down early to sign up.
This event will incorporate the first ever Fictions: Word Soup. At Word Soup you’ll bring tiny morsels of fiction to put into somebody else’s mouth. Short pieces of 60 words or under will be drawn quick-fire out of a raffle, and read by volunteers from the audience. It’s a chance for you to share your work without the additional fear of reading it out yourself. Please come willing to contribute to Word Soup with your words and your voice. Wharf Chambers Co-operative Club is a members’ club, and you need to be a member, or a guest of a member, in order to attend. To join, please visit wharfchambers.org. Membership costs £1 and requires a minimum of 48 hours to take effect.
