Author Readings and Workshops Near Liverpool

Written by Chris Routledge, 2nd October 2007

Manchester-based publisher Comma Press is promoting a new book of short stories entitled Elsewhere: Stories From Small Town Europe and is organising a series of events that may be of interest to readers in Liverpool and the surrounding area.

The first event is at Southport Library (Southport Library, Lord Street, Southport, PR8 1DJ) on Wed 10th October, and features Micheál Ó Conghaile (Ireland), Jean Sprackland (UK), and Zoe Lambert (UK). The second is on the following day at Bebington Civic Centre, Wirral (Civic Way, Bebington, Wirral, CH63 7PN), and features Micheál Ó Conghaile (Ireland) and Zoe Lambert (UK).

Both events will feature 'simultaneous translation' readings - as Micheál reads in the Irish, with a translation scrolling on screen beside him - allowing audiences to experience the cadences of the original. The events will be preceded by a workshop on approaches to writing the 'small town story', with Forward Prize nominated poet Eleanor Rees, offering up-and-coming writers a chance to share Micheál and Zoe's wealth of practical experience and advice.

Anyone interested should contact Jim Hinks via the Comma Press website.
