City Writes: Summer Event


Book Discussion


Speakers: Luiza Sauma and competition winners: Katy Darby, Bren Gosling and Becky Danks.

City Writes is an exciting new event created to showcase the best of City’s Short Courses Creative Writing talent. Readers were chosen from a short story competition open to all current and alumni students of City Short Creative Writing Courses. These competition winners will share the stage with a professional author from City's alumni and/or teaching body.

After a fantastic launch last term (you can read the report here), we are delighted that our professional writer will be short courses alumna, Luiza Sauma, whose debut novel, Flesh and Bone and Water is published by Viking and has been heralded by the New York Times as 'a completely absorbing, brilliantly-designed, literary work'. Katy Darby, Bren Gosling and Becky Danks are the competition winners who will be joining Luiza on stage. Katy is an author and Visiting Lecturer for City Short Courses, Bren Gosling is an alumnus of the Novel Studio and Becky Danks is a current student on the Children's Fiction Short Course.

Luiza will be signing copies of Flesh and Bone and Water after the readings.

Refreshments: Wine, juice and water will be provided.
