While the busyness of the autumn term, alongside teaching my online Reading to Write Prose Poetry course, means that I'm not doing a lot of events in the next few months (I'm also gearing up for the launch of Grief's Alphabet next spring), I have two events, one fiction, one poetry, I wanted to highlight.
This Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the St. James' Wine Vaults in Bath, Flash Fiction Festival director Jude Higgins has organised a free evening of flash fiction readings with a great list of readers, including Diane Simmons, Kathryn Aldridge-Morris, Alison Woodhouse, Ken Elkes, Grace Palmer, Sarah Hills, and yours truly! We'll be upstairs in the Gallery Room, and all are welcome.
On Saturday, 21 October, 5-6 p.m., I'll be reading at Heron Books in the Clifton Arcade in Bristol with poet Emma Jones. With Grief's Alphabet on the way, this is my last planned reading with a focus on The Weather in Normal, and it'll be a pleasure to read with Emma, who just moved to Bath last year. The reading is free, but RSVP is essential given the limited space--email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
I hope to see you there!
