Stop Press for April 27th

April 28, 2011

  • My editor, my wife – By Will Allison – Slate Magazine "I save her marked-up manuscripts as an unluckier husband might save love letters."
  • Onsite Extras at the Hay Festival – Unbound "Unbound is a new company enabling readers to directly fund the work of their favourite writers and to stay in contact with them (and other readers) through the writing of the book. The Unbound website is launching at Hay on 29 May with an event in the Festival programme featuring Terry Jones (ex-Monty Python), Gavin Pretor-Pinney (The Cloud Spotter’s Companion) and Rupert Isaacson (The Horse Boy) introducing their latest book ideas. Readers will also be able to visit the world’s first Unbound Pledging Shed on site throughout the Festival, to meet famous authors, watch their pitches and pledge support for their new book ideas. Join the revolution and visit the Unbound Shed: books are now in your hands!" More when we have it.
  • ‘Autobiographical Terrains’ MA Degree Show – Lisa Wigham "My work is driven by a fascination with the dramatic tension of fragility and weight in mark making. This manifests itself in use of line and space that holds tactile qualities to suggest imminence of experience, movement and the passing of time."
  • Customer Service Romance Writing via Mechanical Turk for telephony systems. Strange magic.
  • Relax, They’re Still Making Typewriters Yeah, someone actually did some research on that story. Honestly…
