Sat 2 June
Join Influx Press editor Kit Caless, plus critically acclaimed authors Clare Fisher (All The Good Things) and C.G.Menon (Subjunctive Moods) as they discuss the art and craft of compiling a prizewinning short story collection. Hosted by James Nash. Eley Williams is now unable to attend this event.
How The Light Gets In is Clare Fisher's second book, following her acclaimed novel, All The Good Things (Viking 2017). A book of fragments and vignettes from buffering Skype chats, to fried chicken shops and the things smartphones make you less likely to do when alone in a public place, Fisher paints a complex, funny and moving portrait of contemporary British life.
C.G. Menon's collection, Subjunctive Moods, will be published by Dahlia Publishing in June 2018. She has won the Bare Fiction Prize, the Leicester Writes Prize, The Short Story Award, the Asian Writer Prize, The TBL Short Story Award and the Winchester Writers Festival award. She’s been shortlisted for the Fish short story prize, the Bridport prize and the Short Fiction Journal awards, as well as the Willesden Herald, Rubery and WriteIdea prizes and the Fiction Desk Newcomer award.
Kit Caless is a writer and broadcaster. He is a regular contributor to Vice magazine and to publications as varied as Architectural Digest, The Quietus and Ambit. He is co-founder and editor at Influx Press, a small independent publisher of fiction and creative non-fiction.
