Rattle Tales Anthology Out Now

Today I found it hard to get out of bed because I was reading the brilliant Rattle Tales anthology featuring stories from very fine writers such as Starlings author Erinna Mettler, and yes my story Playing Horse is in there too.

This week I'm having a break from my Swenglish project, so was happy I could go along to the Rattle Tales event in the Brighton Fringe Festival. What I like best about the event is that it's interactive, the audience is allowed to ask questions the author has to answer on the spot. We were treated to stories about insect sex, pear trees, catholic schools, human bears, modern plague and persuasive sellers.

I don't know if I'm as persuasive as the characters in Susanna Quinn's story but the Rattle Tales anthology is on sale here.

Spring isn't really here weather wise, but I've sprung into poetry again! Last week I won the May Hammer & Tongue poetry slam at Komedia, and on Wednesday I'm very honoured to be one of the "very special guests" at Chris Parkinson's book launch.

Where? The Blind Tiger Club, Brighton

When? 8pm, Wed 9 May 2012


Launch party for famous poet Chris Parkinson's second collection of poems. Featuring performing seals*, live music, party politics, missing limbs, dying swans and some very special guests. And poetry. (*possibly)

I'm still busy with my Swenglish project, but I've allowed myself to sneak out to take part in this very special event. To find out what I'm up to with Swenglish, please check out swenglish2012.blogspot.co.uk
