It was a successful first event for Open Pen Magazine at LXV Books in Bethnal Green as Anna Harvey and Eddie Willson read from their respective winning entries that gained them their Open Pen credentials. They mixed it up with some of their other material – old and new – that was very well received by all in attendance.
A big thank you to everyone that turned up for the occasion including Lotte Daley, author of Faking It and guest contributor to issue 3 of Open Pen, Stewart Ferris of Summersdale Publishing who kindly spoke to us about how and how not to get published, and everyone at LXV Books who were fabulous hosts.
For those that missed out we will be looking to hold another reading at some point over Christmas. Details will be announced nearer the time. In the meantime, here are a couple of photos from the night:
