Hey, Barbecutie

Archive for September 2010

After ever such a lovely time with them at the Stoke Newington Literary Festival, I am giddy with delight to be back reading at Storytails’ regular monthly event this, er, month. This Sunday 26th September, I will be doing words in my big girl voice (which is currently the same as my sick girl voice, but let’s not get down about it) upstairs at the Birdcage in Stoke Newington. The line-up is looking extremely delightful and it should be a very interesting and literific evening. I probably won’t even burst into tears on stage nor nothin’.

Be there or be elsewhere, wondering what it would be like to be there (it would be lovely.)

ALSO I have some very, very, VERY exciting news coming up*…

(* I’m not pregnant or published, but it’s still very exciting.)

What I done on my summer holidays

Starting from tomorrow, Peckham will be hit by a meteor of all-female artistry in the shape of the latest Nest Gallery project THEY IS US, an art exhibition based around female responses to science fiction. We have been installing since Saturday, and the space (as I understand the artistic term to be) is looking amazing. We are presenting a huge variety of pieces, including figurative paintings, embroideries, sculptures and video pieces from some extremely talented artists, and a wee story by yours truly. It should all be pretty special.

The Private View is tomorrow 6-9pm, sponsored by Kopparberg (= free booze) and the show runs until 3rd October. So be there or be part of the stifling patriarchal heirarchy…OF THE FUTURE.

Thanks to the Sisters Burn and the Nest Gallery – it’s been a lot of really terrifying fun.
