Spilling Cocoa Over Martin Amis

Wonderful writer Jonathon Pinnock, who you heard at Story Fridays Feral and Sparks, has set up a new magazine!  If you write comic poetry get over there and send him your stuff!  (I fear if I gave it a go the results would be neither comic nor poetic, but hats off to those of you who are able!).  Click here for the website and good luck!

Recordings of Fools

We had another brilliant sold out night on Friday 1st at Story Friday Fools. We listened to some wonderful stories.  ‘Another brilliant set of stories’ said one audience member, ‘some full of dialogue, some quirky, some spell-binding, all highly entertaining.’   Now you too can listen to the stories and see some photos of the evening here.   Thank you to all the writers, to the wonderfully tuneful Francesca K and to our loyal and glorious audience!  See you on June 17th for Story Friday Solstice.

Story Friday Sellout!

It was a sizzling Story Friday despite the chill of a January night!  We had moving and funny and hold-your-breath-compelling stories about Reds in frozen rivers and men who liked to make matchstick replicas of HMS Dreadnought and a woman who injected gold (It’s a valid treatment. Really.  And on the NHS..)  And motorway service stations, of course.  Mark Rutterford put us all to shame in the costume department by sporting some (highly relevant to his story) wellies.  The Bristol A Cappella Choir overcame carbon monoxide poisoning en route to bring us some glorious golden oldies – I was humming ‘Goodnight’ for days!  We were sold out and had to turn people away – so sorry to those who couldn’t get in, do try again next time, for Story Friday Fools on 1st April!  Thanks folks!
