ye, olde rose

7 Nov

new fiction written for e17 storywalk

i recently wrote a story – ye, olde rose – for e17 storywalk, part of the words over waltham forest literary festival. the brainchild of my arch nemesis, coronation street‘s ken barlow, e17 storywalk offered a rare opportunity to read a story to an audience in the location it’s set in.

the day went well, the stories were all excellent and the various locations added a sense of atmosphere and, er, place that regular readings can rarely match. we’ll hopefully do it again. coming to a town near you soon…

i chose as my setting the glorious ye olde rose & crown theatre pub, and you can read the story here.
