A few updates:
Firstly the Bugged creative eavesdropping project (that I talked about here) launch their book next week. For more info on launch events in Manchester and Birmingham with readings, check out the Bugged website here. Looks terrific!
More opportunities for UK short story writers, the excellent Bristol Short Story Prize team announced 2011 competition. Entries by post or online. Prize money has been increased with next year’s winner receiving £1000 and £150 voucher to spend in Waterstones. Details here.
Finally, the October issue of The Short Review is online now and includes a (syndicated) review of AM Hurley’s The Unusual Death of Julie Christie and other stories (written by me) plus a wonderful review of The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis by Tania Hershman and interview with the author. I’ve read or rather, listened to, some of Lydia Davis’ stories before but after reading Tania’s review … had to go online (Abe Books) and order it!
