Ben Byrne and his short fiction have appeared in Litro magazine and Writer’s Hub, and now on the cover of Open Pen Magazine. His first novel, ‘Fire Flowers’ was published by Europa Editions in the UK & US in February 2015.
Offbeat Tasmanian writer Tadhg Muller is finding his unique style of writing in high demand. He has been published in several literary journals, and in the short fiction collection Transportation: Islands and Cities.Darren Lee is a storytelling stalwart. He has been published twice in Open Pen, and has had his short stories published in several books, including FUGUE (Siren Press)
There are few spoken word performers as jarring and amusing as Mat Woolfenden. His fiction is often performed live, and a taster can be viewed here.
Henry & the Hoorays play a mix of folk and humorous songs, some self-composed and quite a few covers, including ‘The Mary Ellen Carter’ by Stan Rogers, a fabulous tale of ships, storms and the strength of men with a common goal.
We’ll also have the Open Pen Beat Jazz Duo which consists of a talented pianist and a less talented Piers Pereira.
