You Write Funny!

31 August 2018 | WORD Christchurch Festival

Grab a drink from the bar and head into the Heartland Chamber to warm up for the evening ahead. Five writers who really know how to take a page to the stage are: poet and stand-up comedian Ray Shipley as your MC; Erik Kennedy, with his newly launched collection, There’s No Place Like the Internet in Springtime; Megan Dunn, with the brilliant memoir, Tinderbox, about working in a failing bookstore while failing to write a novel; Annaleese Jochems, whose novel Baby is about ‘naked, open female want’, and Chris Tse, whose poetry collection He’s So MASC is ‘acerbic, acid-bright, yet unapologetically sentimental’.
