OPEN PEN LIVE – Thursday, Sept 5th




Live fiction fans, our last big event was almost a year ago now and we’ve been raring to get one in this year. It’s all come together rather nicely, we think, so it would be utterly darling to see you all down there. Tickets are priced at £5 or £4 for concessions, and for that price you get:


Readings from a selection of Issue Eight and Nine authors, such as Darren Lee, Liam Hogan, and Katherine Vik. The stories are handpicked for their suitability for live recital.


It’s not quite stand-up, it’s not quite a reading. It’s something in between and rammed aplomb with appallingly bad fiction of an adult nature. Performed by Sean Preston and Piers Pereira, Filthy Fiction is the reading of the most cringeworthy “adult lit” submissions received at Open Pen and elsewhere. Filthy Fiction is set to take on Edinburgh Fringe in 2014.


Our very own microfiction/flash-fiction competition returns and just got even more special. The winner, selected by our very own Josh Hollwey and a special guest judge, will receive a place in our deluxe edition of Issue Ten (due out in November), whilst two runner-ups will find their submissions on our weekly Little Printer publication. 

And yes, there’s a bar open with moderately priced booze. Show kicks off shortly after 7, and should finish at about 9:30. However, feel free to stay behind after and enjoy further entertainment provided.

VENUE: HACKNEY UNITED SERVICES CLUB – 69 Powerscroft Road, Clapton, London, E5 0PT
