Event description
We celebrate the long dark nights at the Radical Book Fair with an evening of tantalising and terrifying feminist horror...

About this Event

Do you enjoy a dark frisson? A dose of spine tingling, hair raising fear? We'll be making the most of the chill November night to fuel your nightmares with deliciously dark imaginings from some of the most exciting feminist writers working in Scotland...

Our host for the evening is the breathtaking Katy Lennon, editor of Blood Bath Literary Zine.

Katy will be guiding us though mists as thick as curdled blood, burial beds, dreamscapes and beyond with an awesome line up that includes:

writer & editor Heather Parry, the toe curling talent that is Camilla Grudova, Blood Bath Zine contributors Ever Dundas and Zoe Robertson, and fresh from the pages of the new Haunted Voices anthology we have Katalina Watt & Jen McGregor.

Stay tuned for more announcements...
