For those of you who reside (or are visiting) England this coming August, the following events will take place.
On 6th August Esme Carpenter, one of our talented writers, will be taking part in a strange and wonderful event called 'The Going Back and Forth'. It's been developed by students Philippe Nash and Harvey Herman. The event celebrates local art, music and written word, and invites people to come and share. It's going to Brighton, but also to York, which is where Esme comes in. She will be reading a short story for the event, and we (as is Esme) is really pleased to be part of it.
6th August, 7.30pm, Basement Bar, York. Entry is £3. Visit their tumblr at thegoingbackandforth.tumblr.com.
On 30th August Esme will be reading from, and talking about, her young teen novel Against the Elements for The Society of Young Publishers. They're a group of - you guessed it - young publishers and writers who meet twice monthly. She will read and talk about writing and publishing.
30th August, 7pm, The Adelphi Hotel, Leeds. Entry is free for members but is £2 for non-members.
