Lineup for Wee Red Gig

Posted by gav | Posted in Other events | Posted on 23-11-2010


We had a staggering response to our call for contributions to the Wee Red Gig and had to make some very hard decisions to keep the programme to a manageable length. But we’ve done it and are ready to present our selection of new short fiction by up and coming writers working in Edinburgh.

Ready for some new voices? Come along to the Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh College of Art, Wednesday 24th November, 8pm. Admission £3/£2 (readers free).

  • Barbara Melville: One Small Step
  • Bram Gieben: Dancers
  • Caitlin Smythe: The Pumpkin Shells Are Mine
  • Charlotte Plews: Who Killed Cock Robin?
  • Gavin McMenemy: Prisoner
  • Helen Jackson: Form Follows Foretelling
  • Mark Harding: We Love you, MTV
  • Rosie Phenix-Walker: The Lucky Ones
