Grit Lit No 7: Wednesday 16 May 2012, doors 7.45pm, readings 8pm-10pm, with two intermissions.
The night is hosted by the inimitable, ever charming host and compere Mr Geoff Westby.
As always, our inhouse entertainment unit will crank out an eclectic soundtrack that link to the stories read on the night: from drum n bass and yacht-rock to Atari music and fidget house, with swing, garage, gabba and Toto if you're lucky.
The Redroaster Coffee House has a licensed bar and the best hot chocolate in town.

When & Where
Grit Lit is a twice-yearly platform to present gritty, unromantic short stories and stranger-than-fiction tales in Brighton.
Starting on the fringes of Brighton Fringe in May 2009, the events are organised by and for writers.
“Fiction that grabs the reader by the throat and doesn't let him go until you're through with him.” – Larry Brown, The Rabbit Factory
