Event description

Description

Set in an unnamed city in the very near future, poet Luke Kennard’s The Transition revolves around a financially insolvent young couple who are given the chance to redesign their life by moving in with an older couple who will act as their ‘mentors’ in a life-improvement scheme called ‘The Transition’.

‘The growing divide between homeowners and renters, the galloping corporatisation of modern life and the disappearance
of middle-class safety nets are the driving forces behind this dystopia in a velvet glove.’ — The Guardian

Novel Writers

Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas
