Rising Dawn at Story Fridays


Although I couldn’t be there, Kirsty Cox did a grand job reading my story Rising Dawn at Story Fridays in Bath last week for their Speed of Light evening.

You can listen to her reading it, and other stories read by the authors and Kirsty here.

The Speed of Light – Story Fridays


If I could travel at the speed of light, I would be reading my flash story Rising Dawn, at Story Fridays ‘Speed of Light’ event in Bath this Friday, 22nd September, but I’m booked on a film course Saturday morning and it’s one thing too many.

Fortunately actor Kirsty Cox is there to read it for me! So if you are in Bath, go along to Burdall’s Yard and listen in for me! Lots of other great stories.

Stories start at 8.00pm, doors open at 7.15.

Admission £5.00. Tickets on the door.

Venue: Burdall’s Yard, 7A Anglo Terrace, Bath BA1 5NH

Solstice Stories at Story Fridays & Greenlanders at Liars’ League


Great fun at Bath’s Burdall’s Yard reading for Solstice  at Story Fridays. You can listen to my story, Midsummer Morris Marathon and the other stories here.

And here’s the video of Tim reading Greenlanders at Liars’ League. It’s been a busy week!

Catch my writing LIVE


I had a spurt of doing submissions recently, and happily can now announce that my story Greenlanders is being read at Liars’ League on Tuesday 14th June – a transport themed evening in which I take up the baton for whaling ships and emigrant steamers. I can’t be there as I’m teaching in another part of town, and even the fastest bus on earth isn’t going to get me there in time, so if any friends, relations or enthusiasts want to go along and cheer vigorously, that would be gratifying!

I wrote the story as part of a workshop I was running at the Metropolitan Archive, writing to live music from Sarah Lloyd & Ian Kennedy, and having just looked at an exhibition of Victorian photographs of everyone from celebrities to ne’er-do-wells.

Another chance to catch a live story, this time in Bath, at Story Friday on 17th June – a busy week! The story is Midsummer Morris Marathon, fo their Solstice theme. This time I’m reading it myself, so the encouragement to friends in the area is even more forceful – you will be hearing from me!

This story is based on elements of fact – I have met those inexhaustible dancers, though not in Somerset, I have stood on that hill and seen that view – after that it’s entirely hokum, unless it isn’t of course…
