The Institute of Creative and Critical Writing invites you to join us for an evening of midwinter ghost stories, in the beautiful Gothic foyer of Birmingham City University's School of Art.
'Poor Souls’ Light: Seven Curious Tales' is a brand new anthology of Christmas ghost stories, published this December and containing new fiction from the outstanding Curious Tales publishing collective: Jenn Ashworth, Richard Hirst, Emma Jane Unsworth, Tom Fletcher and Alison Moore. There will also be contributions from M. John Harrison and Johnny Mains and stunning new artwork from Beth Ward. The anthology is inspired by that master of the uncanny, Robert Aickman.
Curious Tales publish stories of the supernatural, the uncanny, and stories that use landscape in interesting ways. They pride themselves on using their original fiction and artwork to produce limited edition and beautifully designed print-only books and theatrical performance events, as well as digital and online projects.
Location: The Foyer, School of Art.
