Event Details

It's nearly Valentines Day ... and at a central Brighton branch of a famous supermarket, the staff are preparing for a customers' Singles night. Who'll turn up? Who will they meet? Will someone chain themselves to the trollies if it doesn't go well? Is someone shopping who shouldn't be? It's up to you to decide.

Yes, it's back by popular demand, February 13th will see the return of the Story Scavenger Hunt, with a special themed session the day before Valentines' Day. I'll be inviting you to write a tale of a close encounter - all in one night.

You'll be sent out with your mission (creative writing exercise) in a sealed envelope. Follow the instructions to scavenge together the elements for a story from inside the supermarket. What have shoppers got in their trolleys and who are they talking to? Eavesdrop on conversations, peer into bags (from a distance) and make your notes. Before heading back to base to write up your stories. Will the end result be a comedy of errors - or an affair to remember?

Our base for the evening is the cosy Koba Bar and Restaurant where we'll have our own private room for writing and where you'll be able to buy drinks, snacks and even full dinner - to help the creative inspiration to flow. You can even pre-order food for when you return from writing.

We'll end the evening with a final round of drinks - and storytelling. 12 writers took part in the recent Christmas Story Scavenger Hunt and we had 18 for the Halloween one - so these events are real writing parties and a great way to meet other writers. You can read a couple of stories from the last Scavenger Hunt here.

And it's still a great price £12 or £10 concessions (drinks and food not included). Book your ticket for Wednesday February 13th on Eventbrite here.
