Camden School of Enlightenment – with Mike West

Saturday 4th August  – 1.45pm – 2.45pm

Bertrand Russell Room, Conway Hall

Abi Palmer gives us a fresh update on her internet acquaintance, a compulsive reviewer of cat calendars. Mike West reclaims the uncool poetry and gallant sex life of Henry Newbolt. The makers of Fuselit and Sidekick Books, Jon Stone and/or Kirsty Irving unload some funk from their trunk. And one or two things yet to be dreamed up.

So Bad it’s Good: Adventures in Terrible Writing by Euan structo

Sunday 5th August  – 2.45pm to 4.30pm

Bertrand Russell Room, Conway Hall

In a case of it-seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time, Structo magazine cheerfully presents an afternoon of terrible literature and excruciating poetry. You will find out just how difficult it is to write a truly bad opening line to a novel, witness a poetry slam of Vogonic proportions, and have a go at writing some woeful verse yourself. This will appear in a one-off magazine, to be published online on the day.
