Fictions of Every Kind: Treats
Fictions of Every Kind is Leeds' very own non-profit literary social and writers' social event.
At our event TREATS, we're extremely excited to be hosting excellent invited speakers LARA WILLIAMS and SUZANNAH EVANS.
Lara Williams is a writer based in Manchester. She has had short fiction published by McSweeney's, Litro and various other publications and websites, and her journalism and non-fiction has appeared in the Guardian, NME and the Manchester Evening News. Treats is her debut short story collection.
Suzannah Evans is a Sheffield-based poet whose pamphlet Confusion Species won the Poetry Business competition in 2012 and a Northern Writers' Award in 2013. She teaches creative writing workshops all over the place and is currently working on a collection of apocalyptic poems.
There will also be songs from the Fictions of Every Kind House Band who, yes, are still accepting suggestions for a permanent name.
As ever, there will be a writers' open mic at which flash fiction, short fiction, true stories, and excerpts of larger work, are all welcome. Please keep your contributions within the Fictions ethos of being kind and respectful to other writers, and keep all your contributions under 5 mins. Don't make us ring our bell at you!
This event has been made possible using a grant from Wade's Charity.
