Cast your mind back to the heady days of June, when the sun was shining, the drinks were flowing and one evening people gathered around a microphone to hear tales of worlds that don’t exist. They were fun, right?
Well after a near nearly filling the venue at the last Unsung Live event we couldn’t resist doing it all over again. Only this time it won’t be so incredibly hot, which is all that an Englishman ever wishes for. Am I right?
We are very happy to announce that Unsung Live #2 will take place on 20th October at the Star of Kings, Kings Cross.
Our readers this time include another Shirley Jackson Award nominee, a live-lit vet of the north and one of the most striking new writers this humble publisher has seen since Desirina Boskovich. With a combined distance travelled of over 7000 miles, and a formidable list of publication credits we’re planning on offering you a night of the best kind of surprises.
