Newstead Short Story Tattoo 2011

Newstead’s premier biennial literary event returns this May with a cavalcade, a cornucopia, a veritable concupiscence of practitioners of the short form descending upon the unprepossessing hamlet between 13 and 15 May 2011.

It’ll be a pretty chockers weekend, with events happening all over town, from the signature Fire Stories evening event at the Newstead Racecourse to the Newstead Murders local crime stories gig at the Newstead Courthouse. It’s a pretty stellar list of performers, including Gareth Liddiard, Don Walker, Gary Foley, alicia sometimes, Josephine Rowe, Emilie Zoey Baker and Eric Dando.

Most of the gigs are entry by donation, so there’s hardly any real excuses not to be there as a gorgeous country town that is the delightful Newstead gets completely swamped by literature for an entire weekend.

Anna and I are part of the show, but that ain’t the only reason to go, of course. We’re fronting up at the Local Literati event that closes the 2011 Tattoo at 6.30pm on 15 May at the Newstead Mechanics Hall.

Full details of the tattoo are over at http://newsteadtattoo.org. See you there.

Quelle Grammage!
When I was a younger fella i put lots of swears in me poems... the lovely @benjamindodds scored some anticlinal poetry in the post this week. and so could you if you have a desire for geological poetry zines. just @ me and the magic will happen! "As part of the Warlords of Wor 5th Anniversary Collection, here comes ROCK GOLEM BOG-NAR! With his new IMPENETRABLE GREY GOLEM ARMOUR in place, thanks to his SUPERCHARGED EMERALD SWAMP-SPEAR, the malevolent muck-menace swirls his FOUR-BOULDER BOLO FIST overhead as he commands the very rocks and stones of the planet Wor to go forth and conquer!" #warlordsofwor #bognar "Just in time for the 5th anniversary of Warlords of Wor, here comes CLASSIC SWAMP ATTACK BOG-NAR! With his FOUR-FISTED SLIMEPACK mounted on his back and his MYSTICAL MUCK-SPEAR, the King of All Bogs has never been a more ominous opponent!"
