Launching We/She

Arachne Press are excited to be launching We/She on 16th August at 6.45pm

Blackwells, 50 High Holborn London WC1V 6EP

We/She is their latest Liars’ League collaboration and the second of their #WomenVote100 tributes – although there isn’t a suffragette in sight. Instead they play around with traditional ideas about women, and turn a few (actually, a lot of) myths on their heads. Expect dragons, mermaids, ‘dead wives’, mediums, mothers… and Elvis.
It’s free and there will be readings and refreshments, and, obviously, signed books to buy.

Authors Reading… Joanne LM Williams, Arike Oke, Carolyn Eden, Katy Darby,

Ilora Choudhury, Fiona Salter, Elizabeth Stott, Rosalind Stopps

Other authors are attending, so there will be lots of people to sign a copy of the book for you.

The launch coincides with the 39th anniversary of the death of Elvis… what has that to do with a book of stories by women, you ask… come along and find out!

Smut Slam: September

In September Cameryn Moore brings even more Smut Slam to the UK

smut slam

where sex and storytelling collide

You know what a poetry slam is, and maybe you know about story slams, too. Now it’s time for SMUT SLAM, a fast-paced storytelling open mic based on real life, real lust, real sex. The Smut Slam features real-life, first-person sex stories, guest stories from our panel of celebrity judges, and also THE FUCKBUCKET, a convenient and funnily named receptacle for all your anonymous questions and confessions!

Things are changing a bit for Smut Slam UK. Cameryn is leaving us for a little while due to visa complications, but there will be amazing guest hosts filling her shoes till she gets back.

Tuesday 12 September: SMUT SLAM Bristol: “Sex Education” at The Brunswick Club (15-16 Brunswick Square, Bristol, BS2 8NX). This night will be hosted by guest host Sam Scott.

Wednesday 13 September:  Stand Up Tragedy Presents SMUT SLAM London: “Sex Education” at the Dogstar (389 Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, SW9 8LQ ) This night will be hosted by guest host Miranda Kane who will be filling in for Cameryn in London for Autumn 2017.

For the next SMUT SLAM Edinburgh and SMUT SLAM Glasgow keep an eye on the Smut Slam Scotland facebook page.

For the next SMUT SLAM Brighton keep an eye on the Smut Slam Brighton facebook page.

SMUT SLAMMERS sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute dirty story, based on their real lives, and a lucky eight to ten names will be drawn at random.

NOT A SMUT SLAMMER? Don’t worry. The audience is in for a good time at SMUT SLAM! Sit back and enjoy. All we ask is: – No interrupting. – No heckling. – No necking in the front row. Doors open at 8pm, and the smut starts slamming at 8:30. Admission is only £10 at the door, 18 and over please!

SMUT SLAM is CREATED by Cameryn Moore, an award-winning playwright/performer, sex activist and educator, and, oh yeah: a phone sex operator. She is super excited to introduce London and Smut Slam to each other! When not performing, taking calls, or actually having sex herself, Cameryn writes Sidewalk Smut: custom type-written pornography as street performance and literary art.

The Smut Slam originated in Boston in 2011, became thoroughly established in Montreal that same year, and has since traveled all over the world, with standing-room-only shows in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a whopping 100+ crowd in Atlanta last November, and a sold-out show in Boston in 2016.
