Please join us at Foyles Cafe on 7 September for a presentation of new writing, part of London Lit Crawl 2013.
London Lit Crawl is, to all intents and purposes, a pub crawl through Covent Garden and Soho. It stops at Foyles at 8pm for The White Review’s event, which will consist of readings by:
RACHAEL ALLEN: the online editor for Granta and co-editor of poetry anthology series Clinic and online journal Tender. Her poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in the Sunday Times, The Best British Poetry 2013 (Salt) and Poetry London.
MICHAEL AMHERST: a writer of fiction and non-fiction. His work has been published in the Guardian, the Spectator and and The White Review, among others. He is also a Director of Just Detention International and campaigns against the abuse of those held in custody.
KIT BUCHAN: a poet and songwriter living in London, where he is working on his first musical. He is a general freelancer at the Guardian, where he was briefly the in-house cottage columnist.
PATRICK LANGLEY: a writer and radio producer based in London. His work has appeared in the TLS, The White Review, ARC magazine, Arena Homme+ online, Radio 4, Radio 3, Resonance FM, the South London Gallery and elsewhere.
JOE LUNA: curator of the Hi Zero series of poetry readings and publisher of Hi Zero magazine. His poems have previously appeared in Sous les Pavés, The Cambridge Literary Review, Damn the Caesars, The Claudius App and Lana Turner. His most recent book is called ASTROTURF.
Lit Crawl was created by San Francisco’s literary festival, Litquake, in 2004, as the grand finale to its week-long celebration of the written word. It has now become an event in its own right, with Lit Crawl spin offs in New York’s Manhattan and Brooklyn, Austin and Seattle, Los Angeles and Iowa City. London hosts the first Lit Crawl in Europe, see here for more details:http://litcrawl.org/
There will be drinks.
