I’ll be reading at the Story Cities anthology launch alongside a host of other fab flash fiction authors featured in the book.
Tickets are FREE and you can book them here on the Arachne Press website.
Story Cities explores ways in which stories respond to, reflect and re-imagine the city. Explore new short fictions in multiple genres that address the city. A guide book to the fictional city, all cities, any city: its markets, squares, cafés, hotels, parks, stations and ports; the main streets, side streets, back alleys, dead ends and the crossroads. Never identified, the city has a voice of its own.
This brilliant collection of flash fiction sparkles with originality and many of its images stayed with me… This collection of precision-crafted meditations on public spaces makes us realise that everywhere we go in a city we are only ever a few feet away from a writer jotting it all down in a their moleskin, helping us rethink our feelings about shared environments, crowds, transport and architecture – the throwaway beauty of urban life. – David Gaffney
