As part of an exciting new research project, I’ll be attending two events about the place of the literary trickster in contemporary writing over the next few days. The first is in the Tobacco Theatre, Bristol, on Monday 21st May at 7.30pm – details are here: http://tobaccofactorytheatre.com/shows/detail/the_trickster_and_the_tricked/
The second is an open workshop to discuss the idea of and responses to the Trickster. This will be in Bristol too, on Tuesday 22nd May from 10am – 3pm – details are here: http://trickstertales.org/events/openspacebristol/
I hope to see you there!

May 16th 2012 is a very special day, and you might not yet know why. If you don’t know, I’ll tell you: it’s because it is the first ever National Flash Fiction Day. (Sorry if you did know.) To celebrate, there will be a whole host of events taking place during the day and evening. I’m taking part in an event that will take in readings, chat and questions at Southampton library from 6.30pm. It’s free to get in and will feature readings from flash fictioneers such as Calum Kerr, Vanessa Gebbie and others. Do come along and support the first ever flash fiction day. More details are here, including details of other events all over the UK:
