Writing for multiple genres with author James Smythe

  • Jan 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

London Writers' Cafe will host special guest author, James Smythe. He he has worked as both a Creative Writing teacher and as a writer/narrative designer of video games.

I'm delighted to welcome James for our first author talk of the year. He'll be coming to LWC to talk about creative writing, his own work and writing for multiple genres at the same time (something I am fascinated to hear more about how he keeps it all straight!)

His debut novel, HEREDITATION, was published as part of Parthian's Bright Young Things series in 2009. His next book, THE TESTIMONY, a novel about the voice of God, terrorism and the apocalypse, was published in April 2012 by HarperCollins (Blue Door). In December 2012, HarperCollins (Voyager) published THE EXPLORER, a science fiction novel in the vein of 2001 and Solaris. In April 2013, HarperCollins (Blue Door) will publish THE MACHINE.

Hopefully that covers everything you'll need to know but for any burning questions, please email us.

Costs: £10 per session; please pay by PayPal when you RSVP.

Location: The Shooting Star is less than 5mins walk from Liverpool Street station, on the central Line. See google maps for details.

Take the Bishopsgate exit from the main rail concourse, cross the road, turn left at Dirty Dicks pub onto Middlesex Street. The pub is about 100 metres down on the right-hand side, past Nandos, and we meet in the function room downstairs.

    Thank you, Lisa, for this interesting evening. I would like to thank James very much for taking the time to share with us his experiences. I am truly sorry that I had to leave before the event finished, but I had to attend to another matter.

    Hi Lisa, sadly I also won't be able to make it due to snow related difficulties! A shame because as well sounding like an excellent talk this would have been my first ever LWC event - hopefully next time I'll be more lucky.
