'The closer I get' by Paul Burston

The Closer I Get, a book of our time (and literary events from 27 Aug, 2019)

A. Vasudevan reviews Paul Burston’s new book, published by Orenda Books.

Intimate theatre at its best, The House of Marcelle

The arts are littered with beautiful works based on lost love letters, A. Vasudevan writes. The House of Marcelle, Explore the Arch’s latest offering, joins them, drawing on the missives of Marcelle van Caillie and lover-later-husband Henry Sanford. A multi-sensory work, it brings the forgotten female artist vividly to life.

Flash fiction

Bookchat: Flash fiction – kerpow! (and events July 9 onwards)

Yes, it’s very short. Condensed and explosive. Reader reads. Reader expands and story lingers. That’s how it works but how do you write a piece like that? Angela J. Phillip explores the form of the flash, dribble, drabble, micro – or the tiny tiny story with the long life.

Big Sky by Kate Atkinson

Bookchat: 10 books for summer reading (and events July 2 onwards)

Sun sweetly shines, sea gently ripples, relax and reach for a book.  Angela J. Phillip offers ten sizzlers you might like to try from detective stories through a strange tale with a philosophical slant to moving tales of love and music.

Cheerful writing

Bookchat: Reasons to feel cheerful and write (and events June 25 onwards)

Why do we write? Somebody said it was to find out what we think. Last Thursday at the Sheer Poetry event at Bookbusters, Susan Evans told us that Anais Nin said it was ‘to taste life twice’. Angela J. Phillip has a look at some of the reasons we write – and some of the effects!
