Tania has published two short story collections and has been commended in the Orange Award for New Writers and nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She co-wrote an essential writing guide Writing Short Stories: A Writers & Artists Companion, co-edited the Einstein-inspired anthology I Am Because You Are and her new poetry book Nothing Here Is Wild, Everything Is Open is out this month. She is also founder of The Short Review and curates ShortStops. She is, in short, immense.
Yet again, we have a wonderful open mic line-up. Those names are: Alistair Norman, Jamie Bullock, Jennifer Browne, Joe Clarke, Jon Watts, Kate Feld, Marli Roode, the Nearly Dead Poets, Ros Ballinger and Rebecca Hurst.
And as a special preview, here’s our headliner for 30 March 2016:
NIKESH SHUKLA has written for the Guardian, Esquire, Buzzfeed, Vice and BBC 2. MEATSPACE was published by the influential The Friday Project, and he’s been a shortlistee for the Costa First Novel Award and longlistee for the Desmond Elliott Prize. Add to that the award-winning short film he wrote, Two Dosas, and Kabadasses for E4 and Channel 4. Oh and did we mention he won a Sabotage Award?
What? There’s more? Here’s our headliner for 27 April 2016:
LARA WILLIAMS is a new star on the scene. Her debut collection TREATS, out in Spring 2016 with Freight books, is described as a “break up album of short stories.” Lara was drummer in the Manchester band PINS. She has been published by the Guardian, NME and the Manchester Evening News, and is a graduate of The Manchester Writing School.
Open mic slots for each of these events are available on the 10th of each month.
