Edge Hill's Creative Writing programme will host an evening with novelist and short story writer, Sarah Hall on Wednesday 27th February at 7:30pm.
Hall is the author of four prizewinning novels, including The Carhullan Army and The Electric Michelangelo, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2004. Her first short story collection, The Beautiful Indifference, won the Edge Hill Prize 2012, along with the Edge Hill Readers' Prize. I'm really looking forward to this event. Sarah Hall uses beautiful, original descriptions in her fiction and I can't wait to hear her read. Her story 'Butcher's Perfume' is available to read here.
I've been asked to read a story from Sweet Home at the start of the evening - I'm all wrapped up in novel thoughts, so it will be nice to do something short story-ish.
