Though we say it ourselves, our Crime Night Story Sunday went particularly well and we are grateful to all of our readers and the enthusiastic audience who made it such a friendly and entertaining evening ( pictures at the bottom of the page!)
We still have to decide on next year’s programme but will keep you up to date here with our plans, or contact us to go on our mailing list for events and submission opportunities.
Dawn does it in style at the Book Busk
Meanwhile we’ve been busy at other Bristol Literature Festival Events, including the first ever Book Busk on Bristol Harbourside and at the notoriously raucous (and testing!) Flash Slam where we fielded two teams but still had to give way to Stokes Croft Writers (don’t miss their next Talking Tales evening) when it came to top prize!
They flashed, they slammed …
Coming up is an event hosted by theatre group Bristales. Both Dawn and Ali have been selected to take part in an evening of readings on the theme ‘memories’. Catch them at The Room Above at the White Bear on St Michael’s Hill on Friday Nov 24th at 7.30. (Don’t be late. Ali is first up!)
And just in time for Christmas you can find us on December 9th with our jolly book stall,
this time at the Southbank Christmas Market
MANY STALLS – LIVE MUSIC – HOT SNACKS – FREE ENTRY
BAR OPEN – IT’S INSIDE at Southbank Club, BS3 4DB
Yes we sell books as well as write them. Bargains may well be found!

Here are some reminders of our Night of Crime
We’ve spent most of the last year toiling away at our writing desks, but with September and that new term feeling upon us we’ve decided it’s time to get out and about again. Our aim is to meet more writers, help more writers, and, yes, find new audiences for our work.
First of all we’re delighted to announce a new partnership with the management of Southbank Club in Bedminster who are keen to have creative arts activities alongside language and exercise classes.
And so first off (drumroll!) we’re delighted to announce the Monday Writing Club which will meet fortnightly from Sept 21st (1st and 3rd Monday of each month) from 12 – 1.30 at Southbank (Dean Lane, BS3 1DB) with each session led by a member of the Unchained Writers Collective .
Cosy venue for our autumn workshops and story-reading events
So who is it for?
- Maybe you have an idea I’d like to write about but haven’t quite got round to it
- Or you might have made a start on something but need moral support, feedback or just the company of other tortured souls
- Or maybe you’ve got a finished piece of work (WOOP!) but would like some advice on the mad mad world of publishing (believe us, it is!)
If any of these apply do come along and join us. The cost is a only £4 per session with a hot drink provided (BYO lunch)
You can pay on the day, or if you’d like to reserve a place (or have any questions) please use our contact form.
And did we mention story readings? Watch this space!
