Fictions of Every Kind: North
June 3rd, Wharf Chambers, Leeds (part of HanNah festival)
£3 entry, starts 19:30
Welcome to another engaging evening of thoughts and ideas, of stories and discussion, and of having a drink and pretending it counts as 'being cultured'. This event is part of the HanNah festival and is a collaboration between Fictions of Every Kind, The Poetry Business magazine North, and The Writing Squad.
Our invited speakers at this event are:
CLARE FISHER The winner of the 2013 Spread the Word prize, Clare will be reading from her 'North' series set inside the Inner Leeds Ring Road.
STEVE DEARDEN “In a moment, Steve’s stories stories can go violent, almost too violent, then sexy, really sexy, then funny. Strangely obsessive. And very very smart. Wonderful moments of existential clarity. And then he breaks my heart. Bastard.” Tom Spanbauer
+ Readings from The North magazine, curated by its editors Peter & Anne Sansom
+ Readings from members of the current Writing Squad
