Bristol Festival of Literature 2015


Stokes Croft Writers will be popping up all over the Bristol Festival of Literature this year, thanks largely to our leading light Christie Cluett‘s place on the festival committee.

Events involving Stokes Croft Writers members will include:

Watch four short adaptations of Jonathan L Howard’s iconic Johannes Cabal Short stories, performed live and including none other than SCW member Thomas David Parker!

Visit the book fair for FREE and meet local writers, including our own Christopher Fielden, who’ll be selling copies of the amazing How to Write a Short Story, Get Published & Make Money.

Hear four very different performances from Bristol’s finest truth tellers, aiming to cut through the noise and lies of modern life. There will be live music, dancing, and Stokes Croft Writers there making fools of themselves networking.

Let Thomas David Parker lead you through Bristol’s literary history in this one-hour walking tour, from the house where Coleridge met Wordsworth to where Angela Carter spent her student days.

Want to read more? Want to tell everyone about your favourite book? Come & swap recommendations in your most-loved genre or discover something new over a pint with fellow book lovers – and, of course, Stokes Croft Writers!

Renowned sculptor Carol Peace invites you into her studio for an evening of poetry and prose. A selection of writers (includingThomas David Parker) will share literary works inspired by art, either directly or indirectly.

Witness five local writing groups battle to the death in this flash fiction slam. Stokes Croft Writers will be represented by Chris Fielden, Christie Cluett, Leah Eades and Mel Ciavucco. VICTORY SHALL BE OURS!

The festival closes with a bang at the Speakeasy, a new spin on the Talking Tales format, including interviews with guest writers, live music & more. As always, all of Stokes Croft Writers will be there, and Steph Minns will be performing some original flash fiction.
