Novel Nights Short Story Special This Thurs, Bristol

EDITED: sadly, I wasn't well enough to go but I hear a great time was had by all, and I look foward perhaps to reading at Novel Nights another time!

I'm really looking forward to appearing at the Novel Nights' Short Story Special this Thurs March 19th at The Landsdown, in Bristol. The poor organisers had to put up with me saying to them for the past year, But you do know I don't write novels? Until it was explained that it's not ALWAYS novelists that they invite...  I am dense and annoying! Alongside wonderful writers Freya Morris, Ken Elkes, Judy Darley, Louise Gethin and Thomas Parker, I'll be reading some stories (and, shh, some poems too) and talking about writing and probably about permission, one of my favourite themes. Please do come if you're nearby!

Just to let you know that you can hear a podcast of the permission-themed short story event I chaired with the wonderful Jon McGregor, Lucy Wood and Eliza Robertson - hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the evening!
