Through WriteNow we want to find, mentor and publish new writers from communities under-represented on the nation’s bookshelves. This includes writers from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) or LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer) communities, writers who have a disability, or come from a socio-economically marginalised background.
The Dark Side of Fairy Tales
Monday 9 October, 7pm, FREE
Fairy tales are pretty stories with happy endings meant for children, right? Well, not these ones! Perhaps we’re more familiar with the tame storybook versions, but fairy tales were originally shared between adults, and are crammed full of blood, violence, sex, mystery and betrayal. Join award-winning novelist, short story writer and author of the magical The Gracekeepers, Kirsty Logan, for an exploration of the darker side of the tales we all think we know.
