Ten Writers Telling Lies is a unique collaboration between a group of storytellers and poets, and the singer-songwriter, Jim Byrne. The writers got together with Jim to create a collection of songs, poems, and stories available as a book and accompanying CD. Unlike other literary collections the writers involved harbour a dark secret.

This event will include readings by the writers, spoken word performances by the poets and live music by Jim Byrne and friends playing songs from Ten Writers Telling Lies. The writers appearing on the night are:   Pat Byrne, Samina Chaudry, James Connarty, Pauline Lynch, Calum Maclean, Michael Norton and Stephen Watt.

‘Ten Writers is that rare delight – an anthology so consistently good that you read every piece in order, without flicking through the pages in search of something more exhilarating.’ Extracts from the Foreword by Zoë Strachan and Louise Welsh

‘This inspired and inspiring collaborative project reminds us of the longstanding two-way traffic between music and the muse. What better duet can you get than the perfect harmony of songs and stories, lyrics and poetry, memory and melody?’ Willy Maley – Scottish literary critic, writer, University of Glasgow Professor of Renaissance Studies
