Here you will find details of my upcoming events and festival appearances

National Young Writers Festival: Thursday September 27 – Sunday September 30

The Best Book I (N)ever Read
Thursday 27 September, 5-6pm, Newcastle City Library
These writers have a confession to make. Tolstoy? Haven’t read it. Infinite Jest? Nope! The collected works of the Brontes? Not them either. Four writers dust off their to-be-read stack and discuss the classic books they’ve never read.

High Brow/Low Brow
Saturday 29 September, 2-3pm, Watt Space Gallery
Four writers discuss their work being critical and creative about low brow media, and how they cut through the cringe to find the generative artistic possibilities.

Sunday 30 September, 7-8pm, Newcastle City Library
An Antislam is where good poetry comes to die. It is a celebration of failure, where the worst poetry is crowned the winner. Open Mic Sign Up. Poetry Slam rules. Lowest score wins.
