The month has flown by and it's Word Soup time again. Hooray!
We've got a great line-up again and are pleased to present
Coming to us from Derby, Emma is a writer, blogger and performer whose short work has been published widely on-line and in print. As well as that, she helps organise Hello Hubmarine, Derby's newest Live Lit night, and, along with her friends in the Time Travel Opportunists, publishes themed chapbooks. If we're really lucky, she may even bring some with her.
Annie is the author of a collection of micro-fiction, Winter Hands and features in Flax Books' latest digital anthology, Unsaid Undone which you can read online here. or read an interview with the lady herself here. She's an experienced and talented reader, specialising in prose-poems and I've heard a whisper she's writing something special to read to us on the night.
In his own words, David is 'currently churning out stories at a high rate' on his blog. 'I am trying to write a short story a week for a year. It's going well - I've just passed the halfway mark - some of them are good, some are bad and some look like they've been written in half an hour to meet a deadline (which they probably have).' Can't wait to hear what David comes up with for SKIN.
Andrew Michael Hurley
Andrew is the author of two short story collections: Cages, and The Unusual Death of Julie Christie. He's a regular performer at Lancaster's Spotlight Club and the latest addition to the Preston Writing Network Volunteer Bloggers' Club (okay - I made it up. There isn't a club.)
A graduate of the Manchester's MA in Creative Writing, Richard writes a blog, is a regular contributor to Scunt and is a volunteer contributor here at PrestonWN blog. He's not telling us what he's planning, which scares me a bit...
We've poached Tim from his spot at No Point In Not Being Friends and got him on the train for Word Soup 2. Tim is a contributor to We Are Young and We Are Trying and here's a sample of the treats to come in the form of a short story of his at Dogmatika.
we're going for gold again with music and short films as well as the readings - details of these to be confirmed!
