TONIGHT! The Butcher’s Shop, Sponsored by Hendrick’s Gin – RECESSION SPECIAL!
Prepare your prose for the taste of cold editorial steel: The Butcher’s Shop, BAD IDEA’s unique writing workshop is BACK TONIGHT for a recession themed special. Broke, destitute, disillusioned? Dreaming of Fred Goodwin’s’ head on a spike? We’ve taken your submissions and will be dissecting them as part of the tonight’s entertainment. And we still have tickets available – purchase them HERE to guarantee entry when you turn up (you can also pay for entry at the door if you prefer).
We’ve also invited editors Alyssa McDonald (New Statesman), and Jean Hannah Edelstein (BAD IDEA) to pore over one lucky story and investigate what makes recession rage translate into good feature journalism!
Special guests from CompletelyNovel.com will also be in attendance to lead a debate about HOW TO SAVE PUBLISHING FROM ABSOLUTE ANNIHILATION BY THE 21ST CENTURY’S DIGITAL TSUNAMI!!
Apart from that, BAD IDEA’s editors Jack and Daniel will be doing their usual “Gunther von Hagens for the literary elite” (KultureFlash) thing, and editing your work in a lively environment where “… you can expect the shouty Victorian atmosphere to increase towards grammatical brawling as the night goes on” (Guardian). To buy tickets click here.
Sponsored by Hendrick’s Gin, who will provide complimentary cocktails throughout the evening, The Butcher’s Shop is held in the atmospheric environs of the Old Operating Theatre (behind London Bridge station).
