Edinburgh World Writers' Conference by Penny Schenk
School's Out Tonight!

The Kitschies present... Beukes, Miéville and Ness (next week!)

We're getting very excited about the upcoming shindig at the Free Word Centre with Red Tentacle winners Lauren Beukes, China Miéville and Patrick Ness.

The Kitschies - Rona Marin MillerMr. Miéville and Mr. Ness stole the show at the Edinburgh festival - next week's audience gets all that plus added Beukesness. Which spells success. Or complete apocalyptic chaos. Maybe both.

The event kicks off next Tuesday night at 6.30 pm. The details are on the Free Word Centre's website, including how to get there (hint: Farringdon or King's Cross) and ticket information. 

There will be readings, a panel discussion and lots of opportunities to ask questions.

Thanks to the kind people at Blackwell's, there will be a vast array of books for shopping and signing purposes. Don't forget, this is Lauren's sole London appearance!

Plus, courtesy of our sponsor, The Kraken Rum, there will be inky, tasty beverages for the consumption, including heartily discounted cocktails.

And we've had some posters designed by Rona Marin Miller to celebrate the occasion. We're only printing a hundred of these, and they'll be on sale at the event, with the proceeds going towards the award (and future events). If there are any remaining, we'll a) be sad and b) sell them online. 

We hope to see you there - it promises to be a truly tentacular sort of evening.

[UPDATE: We've released a few extra tickets for sale!] [Sold out again!]
