3 Piece Suite

Serious, personal, ironic, irreverent spoken word, banter and cantolicious contrasts
as our lit trio, squeezed into a shoebox of magical bookery keepery hit off with
#darnfineyarns #beatpoetry #flashfiction #shorts #blogstuff provocatively
poised to perk the palest mood, or madden the politically entrenched.

‘A Club sandwich of literary delights’

Bronwen Griffiths, author, photographer and artist. Bronwen is the author of the novel, A Bird in the House, and a book of short stories on Syria, Not Here, Not Us. Her short fiction has won awards and has been widely published. She will be reading some lighthearted stories about her childhood and her mother, together with a few serious pieces about refugees and Syria. Bronwen writes: “As part of Hastings Fringe, local authors Steve Amos, Ross Andrews-Clifford and myself will be reading our work. The authors aim to be serious, personal and ironic but most of all they hope to entertain, although they may also try to unsettle you.”


Ross Andrews-Clifford

Ross Andrews-Clifford has straddled being a performer and a graphic designer, but not given up on either– both inform each other and cross-pollinate to enrich whatever project he is working on. Ross studied Performance Art at West Sussex Institute. During the 90s he lived in Brighton, following a period as a hermit in a cave in Crete; when he returned he started a 10-piece alt-jazz band, The Sumerian Kyngs with The Damned’s keyboard player, Monty Oxymoron. The band received radio play in several countries. At this time he was a regular stand-up poet on the Open-mic nights performing mainly in Brighton, but also at the Jazz Café and The Poetry Café in Covent Garden. He has several published books of poetry and continues to perform his own unique brand of spoken word / sonic poetry with his current band, Column258. He has performed in London Frieze week 2016 in an underground car-park off Oxford Street—a collaboration with the German street artist, Daniel Hartlaub, and performed at many charity events.

Steve Amos

Steve Amos

Steve Amos has been a writer and performer since the age of seven, when his school report said ‘Stephen enjoys writing strange stories and reading them to the class’. He has continued to write ever since that time, winning the Limnisa International Short Story Competition in 2011 and the Stories of St Leonards competition in the same year. His writing can be found at Steve Amos. He also has a blog about life as an indie dad.

As a member of the Illiterati Writers’ Group in Hastings, Steve appeared in well received shows such as ‘Saucy Songs and Bittersweet Tales’ at the Electric Palace in Hastings Old Town. He has also read at several Short Fuse events and at the Alternative Valentines Show at the Beacon Arts Centre in Hastings. Last year Steve performed at the Belles Lettres Literary Festival.

3 Piece Suite: The event is free and will take place from 7 – 9 pm this Sunday, 17th September, at the Bookeeper, Kings Road, St. Leonards. (Close to Warrior Square Station.)
