About ‘Post-it: Independents Biennial Writers-in-Residence 2018’
For the relaunch of the Independents Biennial, eight writers were invited to document the festival, openly, honestly and without restriction. Their responses are collected together in this anthology of short stories, scripts, poetry and essays published to help inform an open conversation about change in the arts, and the impactful change the arts can have on our city and community.
The book will be available for £10 on the night at George Henry Lee’s, and soon after from News From Nowhere on Bold Street.
