British Summer Time could not possibly end without one more of these… Talking Tales #20 is now open for submissions.
Much will be familiar. The unbridled glee of Stokes Croft Writers, the unleashing of bright, evocative and quite possibly scary tales, the warm waft of supportive smiles from a welcoming audience. Once again, we are proud to be a part of the awesome Bristol Festival of Literature that you will know so well.
But as it’s still Summer time – we thought we’d throw you a googly and deliver TT#20 from Café Kino in Stokes Croft, just a few yards from our home at Left Bank. We shall be downstairs, where writers will congregate like ladybirds in your window frames – as serene and colourful, of course.
Writers with a story that is all your own work, that you can read (in less than 10 minutes) and that is worthy of a Christie Cluett introduction – submit now!!!
Submissions for Talking Tales#20 close on Friday 19th October.
E-mail your story to: email@example.com
Event details – are stupendously straight-forward:
…venue: Cafe Kino, 108 Stokes Croft, Bristol BS1 3RU
…time: 7.00pm on Saturday 27th October 2017.
…join-in: the ‘finish the lines‘ competition – win a badge.
We often smile in adverbs (supportively, happily, proudly) at new writer-performers.
