Terror Scribes Gathering 2010

The Lansdowne, 121-123 London Road, Leicester, UK

Saturday 17th July, 13:00 – 20:00 GMT

Let me tell you about a free event happening this weekend in the city of Leicester, one that I urge all writers of the weird, horrible and macabre to get to if they are able. There will be a lot of the usual going on, like talks, readings from stories, eating and drinking, plus there will be a raffle to generate funds for the EDGE charity, which works to help species which are evolutionarily distinct and on the verge of extinction. All attendees are encouraged to bring an item along to be raffled off (artwork, book, magazine, signed print off of something you’ve created – or whatever).

Yours truly will be popping along, where I will be giving my first ever ‘public reading’. I will be reading out one of my august blogs from these very virtual pages in a Q&A/discussion session – haven’t quite decided which blog yet. Others will be reading short stories and excerpts during the day, and finally, after all the literary shenanigans everyone will be repairing to the local curry house for a traditional English favourite. After that there’s either the local nightclubs for those still able to ‘get on down with their big, bad selves’ or the journey home.

I do encourage all those who are either horror writers or interested in horror writing to come along if they’re in the Leicester area or its environs. It promises to be a great day, with friendly people, good food and good drink. As pointed out above, the day is free, but please bring enough money along for food, drink and the raffle.

  1. Thanks Simon. It looks set to be a great day. If anyone is interested in coming to the gathering from far afield, we have information on nearby hotels for you here http://goleicestershire.com/accommodation/. The Lansdowne is close to Leicester Train Station, so if you book a hotel in that area, you shouldn’t be far away. Looking forward to meeting you.
