Aye Write is hosting the final live outing for Neu! Reekie!’s ‘After Curfew’ anthology.
Leading the charge and your MC for the night is artist/provocateur Bill Drummond – the keeper of The Curfew Tower.
‘After Curfew’ is a book featuring 12 writers who visited The Curfew Tower in Cushendall as part of the Neu! Reekie! Residencies and contains new work by these writers as well as a preface and post-script by Bill Drummond. ‘After Curfew’ is a hardback beauty, part of a limited run and not currently available online or in any bookshop – it will be available at this event directly from Bill and Neu! Reekie!
You will hear from:
Bill Drummond – Scottish artist, musician, writer, and record producer, Bill was the co-founder of late 1980s avant-garde pop group The KLF and its 1990s media-manipulating successor, the K Foundation, with which he famously burned £1 million in 1994.
Hollie Poetry – A writer who loves writing, Hollie has published poetry collections, Papers and Cherry Pie, and a poetic memoir of parenthood, Nobody Told Me, and won the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry 2016.
Kirsty Logan – Glaswegian writer of novels and short stories including Things We Say In The Dark, The Gloaming, The Gracekeepers, A Portable Shelter, and The Rental Heart & Other Fairytales.
Kevin Williamson – Writer, publisher, poet, performer of Burns and half of Neu! Reekie! He is also co-founder of the political and cultural publication, Bella Caledonia, and throughout the nineties he ran underground literary powerhouse, Rebel Inc, which published early work by authors including Alan Warner and Irvine Welsh.
Michael Pedersen – A Robert Louis Stevenson Award winner, a John Mathers Trust Rising Star of Literature, a Canongate Future 40 and a Callum McDonald Memorial Award finalist.
William Letford – William received a New Writer’s Award from the Scottish Book Trust in 2008, and an Edwin Morgan Travel Bursary, which enabled him to go to Northern Italy where he helped in the restoration of a medieval village.
& perhaps more.
‘After Curfew Anthology’ will be available at this event directly from Bill & Neu! Reekie!.
