Fictions of Every Kind: Transformations

Monday June 29th, Wharf Chambers, 23-25 Wharf Street, £3 in, 19.30

Our June event, themed TRANSFORMATIONS, is a celebration of transformations, of transmogrifications, and of things turning out very differently than you expected. We're excited to once again, be bringing two world-class writers to Leeds, and still at the bargain price of £3. ADAM MAREK Adam Marek is an award-winning short story writer. He won the 2011 Arts Foundation Short Story Fellowship, and was shortlisted for the inaugural Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award and the Edge Hill Short Story Prize. His stories have appeared on BBC Radio 4 Extra, and in many magazines and anthologies, including Prospect and The Sunday Times Magazine, and The Best British Short Stories 2011 and 2013. His short story collections The Stone Thrower and Instruction Manual for Swallowing are published in the UK by Comma Press, and in North America by ECW Press. KIRSTIN INNES Innes' short stories have appeared at the Melbourne Writers Festival, Toronto IFOA, and on Radio 4. Her first novel, Fishnet, will be published soon by Freight books: it "lays bare a world too often misjudged and misunderstood. Kirstin Innes writes with courage, warmth and real insight. This is a hugely enjoyable and important book." (Emma Jane Unsworth) + writers' open mic, at which and excerpts from larger works are all welcome. Please keep your contributions at 5 minutes or under, and sign up on the door when you arrive. + Music, to be confirmed! Entry is the usual bargainous £3! You must be a member of Wharf Chambers to attend this event, but don't worry, joining is really easy. Joining costs £1 and takes a minimum of 48 hours to take effect. To join, see www.wharfchambers.org This event is supported by the Leeds Inspired grants scheme.
