Hosted by Literary Kitchen as part of LitCrawl, I’ll be performing with 14 writers at the Peckham Pelican on 11th October – doors open 7.30pm for an hour of poetry and flash fiction. With Andrew Alston as master of ceremonies, the evening’s title is ‘Sex Flash Marathon’ so please bring your maiden aunt; other performers  include the brilliant Alice Furse, Francis Gilbert, Prudence  Chamberlain, Ella Frears, William Wyld, Claudia Turkington, William Jamieson, Rachel Long, Simon Bill, Seraphima Kennedy, Jacob Sam La Rose, Inua Ellams, Amy Key, Thomas Darby and music from Trevor John.

This comes at the end of a day of literary and arts events in the area. The White Review is also hosting an event concurrently with Emily Berry, Luke Brown, Kit Buchan, Holly Pester and Zoe Pilger – – – if the above Sex Pelicans don’t appeal, please do make it to the Peckham Springs Café for what will be a fascinating evening.
