Courttia Newland & Lisa Blower

3 Feb 2020

The short story can be seen as a time capsule that speaks of a universe greater than its contents. The leaps of imagination and twists of language that enable the form to carry such heft, elicit some of the finest writing in any language – from Kafka to Munro to Octavio Paz.

We invite you to experience the joys of the short story with two of its finer practitioners in the UK – Courttia Newland and Lisa Blower – together on stage for the first time, chaired by writer and primary school teacher Luan Goldie.
