Fictions of Every Kind: The Uncanny (Dec 2013)
Tuesday 3rd December, Wharf Chambers, £3. Starts 19:30
Welcome to the Fictions of Every Kind almost Christmas event. This month, we’ll be celebrating the strange, the uncanny, and all things skin-crawly. Our invited speaker this month is:
DAVID HARTLEY David Hartley is a writer and performer based in Manchester where the bricks and rain of the city seep into the cracks of his skull and get mushed into strange, dark stories. His debut collection of unhinged flash fiction “Threshold” was published with Gumbo Press in early 2013 and now haunts the houses of his friends and family like a lurking poultergeist. His next project is a new collection of upsetting Christmas stories designed to put you off your mince pies forever. He tweets occasional oddities at @DHartleyWriter, and blogs further nonsense at davidhartleywriter.blogspot.com
Music this month comes from HERB DIAMANTE. There will also be added weirdness from our friends DANCERS BIZARRE.
Expect the usual prompted writing games, sociability, and probably a few unexpected surprises! Open mic: As usual, contributions of fiction, flash fiction, novel excerpts and true stories all welcome. Please keep your contributions at 6 minutes or under. We recommend reading your story to a few friends first as a way of getting prepared. Arrive early to sign up!
