We’re now in Bulgaria, where next week we’ll be doing workshops in Varna at the LECTI (Language Education Culture Tolerance Information) Centre. After that, we’ll be heading back to Sofia for a mini-residency in the Sofia Literature and Translation House.

If you are in Varna and would like to come along to our workshops, head to event.lecti.eu to sign up. And if you are in Sofia at in the middle of August, and want to talk to us, get in touch.

As well as workshops and events, we’re both hard at work on a number of writing projects. There are a couple of top secret collaborative projects in the works, and we may post about these some time later on. But for the time being, we’re keeping these under wraps.

More immediately, Hannah has been publishing stories in a large number of literary magazines, including Idle Ink, Fictive Dream and the Bangor Literary Journal. She also has stories in the extremely well-reviewed Unthology 10, and in a forthcoming collection of drinking stories from Valley Press.

Meanwhile, Will’s travel book, Stealing with the Eyes: Imaginings and Incantations in Indonesia is just out from Haus Publishing, and his children’s book, Lucy and the Rocket Dog, which was published by Knopf in 2017, has been picked up in South Korea.

Along with fellow writer Alexandros Plasatis, at the end of July 2018 we’ll be co-running a workshop at Leicester Cathedral to run alongside Arabella Dorman’s exhibition, Suspended. The workshop will take place on the 26th July, and then on the following day we will be involved in running a creative writing performance event in the cathedral.

We’re delighted to be running two creative writing workshops on the 13th and 14th of August in conjunction with our good friends the LECTI (Language Education Culture Tolerance Information) centre in Varna, Bulgaria. LECTI are a fabulous organisation who run a feverish riot of activities in multiple languages.

We’ll be in Bulgaria for a good chunk of August, so we’ll post a bit more about any other Bulgarian events closer to the time.
