Announcing our special guest Lucy English

Lucy English

In an exciting update to our Story Sunday ‘Tales of Our City’ event on  October 20th we’re thrilled to announce that we – and you – will be joined for the evening by Bristol’s favourite writer and spoken word poet Lucy English.

We’re sure that you have either met Lucy or know her work; from her acclaimed novels Selfish People and Our Dancing Days to her recent achievements in poetry, digital writing and film. Lucy recenty organised the brand new Lyra  Poetry Festival in Bristol and you may also know her as a tutor  on the Bath Spa MA in Creative Writing.

Lucy will give a short performance as part of the Tales of Our City evening alongside  a selection of other local writers who have submitted for the event.
Speaking of which, to have a chance of joining Lucy on the Southbank stage, you still have penty of time to SEND US YOUR STORIES!

Of course non-writers are also welcome to an evening of diverse and diverting performances from our talented local writing pool,  all in the laid-back atmosphere of Southbank Club in Bedminster.

Tickets £5 in advance from Bristol Ticket Shop, or £6 on the door.

After something of a lull at WU Towers we’re delighted to be open for submissions once more for our first 2018 Story Sunday event on Sunday April 29th with the theme of A Moment in Time when around ten writers will be invited to take to the Southbank stage in Bedminster and enthral us with their talent.

Submissions Open Now

Any genre is acceptable, a historical tale or an imagining of the future, or maybe just a moment, crystallised in words. As ever we love to be shocked, stunned, terrified or delighted in any way.
Please check our submissions page for full instructions on how to send us your finely-wrought words.

All welcome on the night

Our promise to writers is a friendly audience – to our audience a night to remember for a mere £5 entry.
