Literature Festival Retrospective – Afternoon Readings

17 Oct

It’s too late to attend the Literature Festival’s Afternoon Readings, but you can listen to them online until Wednesday 19th October. Thanks to University of Gloucestershire Creative Writing student Keely O’Shaughnessy for reccomending these recordings – the events were among her festival highlights. Joe Dunthorne, whose novel Submarine was made into the film of the same name, reads a new short story. Also reading his new short fiction is James Tate Black Award winning novelist Andrew Miller. And those interested in fiction for a younger audience will especially appreciate Meg Rosoff’s reworking of a classic fairy tale.


New Audio Story

28 Sep

The audio section has been updated with another great piece, this time a short story by University of Gloucestershire student Keely O’shaughnessy: ‘Breakfast Bar.’ O’shaugnessy’s uplifting piece was selected for production from a strong field last year. It follows a stagnating man whose relationship is crumbling, and whose escapist fantasy of a North American good life unravels when he encounters a girl at his local Homebase. You can listen to ‘Breakfast Bar’ here: The Breakfast Bar
