This October…

I’m really happy that two of my older short stories will be getting another outing this month.

These Seven‘, an anthology originally published by Five Leaves in 2015 as part of Nottingham’s bid to become a City of Literature, will be featured at the launch of Nottingham’s First Tuesday Book Club, organised by the British Red Cross on October 8th at St Andrews with Castlegate United Reformed Church.

These Seven’ includes my story, ‘Here We Are Again’, and it’s great to have been invited along. Several of the other authors included in the anthology will also be attending, as well as Alex Fraser, the head of Refugee Support, and the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Trent University’s Creative Writing MA students are busy putting the finishing touches to their anthology, ‘And What Do They Call You?’ , a celebration of their hard work and talent. After visiting the class to provide a guest workshop, it was a privilege to be asked to submit a story, and I’m delighted that ‘School Run’, first published by Weathervane Press in The Woman Under the Ground and Other Stories will be included.

‘And What Do They Call You?’ will be launched on October 30th at Nottingham’s Antenna.
