Upcoming gigs

Science fiction/poetry – Mon 28 Sept

Science fiction and science poetry is coming to Listen Softly London on Monday 28 September.

The gig will take place at The Crown, Blackfriars Road (nearest tube Southwark) and doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Four great artists will be representing the worlds of the weird and wonderful:


Daniel Carpenter is an author with work online at Metazen and The Irish Literary Review. His short fiction has appeared in the Boo Books anthology After the Fall, and has been shortlisted for the Manchester Climate Change Short Story Competition. His non-fiction has been published on Tor Dot Com and Bookmunch.

Ella Chappell studied both the BA and MA degrees in creative writing at the University of East Anglia. Her poetry has been published in various online and print magazines including Elbow Room, The Lighthouse, Ink, Sweat & Tears and Belleville Park Pages. Her film poem, Rolling Frames, made in collaboration with a choreographer and filmmaker, won the Southbank Poetry Film Competition, Shot Through The Heart, and has since been screened at many film festivals internationally, winning multiple awards.

Harry Man holds an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University. Winner of the 2014 Bridges of Struga Award, his first pamphlet Lift (Tall Lighthouse) was shortlisted for ‘Best Pamphlet’ in the 2014 Sabotage Awards. Recently his work on the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory was presented at the Apiary Studios in London. His second pamphlet ‘Finders Keepers’ will be published by Sidekick Books in 2015.

William Thomas is a writer and music promoter from West Sussex who has hunkered down in London and called it home. He is the founder of Folkroom Records, and the face of their fortnightly gigs near Kings Cross. He has written about Disney films for The Guardian, festival food for Glastonbury, and music for anyone who’d let him. His novel ‘Carrying The One’ marks the first time he has killed off the entire population of the world, but he very much doubts it will be his last.

Tickets for this extravaganza are £4 and available here.
