Something for the Weekend
Since it’s Saturday, we have a bit of a mish-mash blog for you, picking up on some of the things that have happened over the last few days that might be of some interest to you over the weekend when you’ve got a few minutes to spare.
First of all, some kitchen sink porn, oh yes, you get it all here! Here’s a link to a video that will make you drool and then inspire you. I’ll say no more – have a watch when you’ve got a minute or two to indulge yourself: Click here for video – don’t miss it!
Many congratulations to Salt author Angela Readman who had a poem from her book ‘Strip’ discussed in The Times by Frieda Hughes (daughter of Ted Hughes & Sylvia Plath and accomplished author in her own right). You can read about it here on the Salt Confidential blog. This appeared on the 31st December – a wonderful way to end the year, Angela!
One of the books we’re publishing this Spring is ‘The Most Serene Republic: Love Stories from Cities’, and its author, John Saul, has been interviewed by Cadaverine Magazine; you can read it here. John’s previous Salt book, ‘Call It Tender’ was reviewed in The Times in the Summer.
Salt author Anita Heiss has got together an Australian tour running during the course of 2008, ending in Paris, France – find out where and when she’s appearing and make a date, full details are here.
And, just to keep you going, I’m delighted to tell you that the third edition of The Short Review has just been launched, edited by Salt author Tania Hershman. This is a great resource for anyone interested in reading or writing short story collections – dig around and enjoy!
Happy weekend, everyone!
