We Are Gathered – audio version

I have just received a rough recording of my story, We Are Gathered.

It was recorded live in the Anglican chapel at Arnos Vale Cemetery on a stormy October evening, and is narrated by the poet and writer, B Anne Adriaens. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Rich Jeffery who will be putting together an audio book with a polished version of the above along with all the other stories that were read out at the North Bristol Writers’ event.

News from the Nameless Writing Group

Congratulations to B Anne Adriaens, poet, writer and member of the Nameless Writing Group who has made her first publication. The transatlantic webzine and online publisher of dystopian poetry, flash fiction and photography, The Bees Are Dead, has featured Miss B’s poem, CWM. Here’s what they said about it:

“This prosaic poem offers an unrelenting and vivid exposition of abandoned Welsh industry. 

Adriaens takes us by the hand and pulls us through a rusting forest of steel; her descriptions confessing a strange base excitement amidst the unheimlich, intertwining context of the natural and mechanical. 
From an objective point of view, the scenes within this poem could be that of a suburban love story, but via our narrator’s sensory stream of consciousness, we are treated to a speculative glimpse of the post-apocalyptic…”

And here’s the link to CWM.

Way to go, B!
