A story called Graffiti is up on Pulp.net HERE. Graffiti is the final story in my collection of short fiction, Words from a Glass Bubble.
When people say 'what's your work ABOUT'? This is a perfect example. It's about how bloody SAD life can be, but it's up to us to lift it, make it MEAN something.
Pulp.net is entering into a partnership with Costa Coffee and starting a series of short story events in London. The first will be on January 12th at Costa, Piccadilly.
Pulp says this on the website:
Mon 12 January
Pulp Net Short Story Cafe 7-8pm, £5/£3
In association with Costa, Pulp Net launches the Short Story Cafe at Costa Piccadilly
An hour of short stories a month in the comfort of a London coffee-house – what more could you ask for? In the first of this event series Pulp Net presents: award-winning short story author Helen Simpson, story writer and debut novelist Chris Killen, Costa writer-in-residence Davy Spens and Willesden’s finest, Stephen Moran.
Run time: 7.30pm – 8.30pm.
A suggested donation on the door of £3 is requested towards running costs. Note: Places are limited to 40, assigned on a first-come first-served basis from 7.15pm.
I will be reading something at the second of these events, on 9th February. Same venue.. Costa, Piccadilly.
