I’m writing to let you know that we finally have a date and a venue for the Spilling Ink: Volume 1 launch party! The event will be held on Tuesday, 19 April 2011 at the University of Glasgow Anatomy Museum. Wine and conversation from 5:30pm and Event from 6:00 – 8:00pm. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, let us know how many will be in your party so that we can (at least) try to have wine and snacks aplenty!
The evening will feature readings from anthology contributors: Gill Hoffs, Kirsty Neary, Alan Gillespie, Marc R Sherland and Kathrine Sowerby. We will also be joined by friends of the University of Glasgow Creative Writing Programme as we celebrate other local literary magazines and journals including Michael Schmidt/PN Review, Alan Gillespie, Shelia Miller, Nick Boreham/From Glasgow to Saturn, Kirsty Logan/Fractured West and, of course, Amy Burns (that’s me!)/Spilling Ink Review.
The Anatomy Museum is a great, slightly quirky place to hold a launch party, I know, but I’ve attended several events at the Museum and there’s something oddly appropriate and intimate about the venue. While it makes a great place to gather for a celebration, it is notoriously difficult to find! I will cut and paste walking-directions below and will attach a marked map. I will also attach a flyer should you wish to advertise the event.
I hope to see you there!
Anatomy Museum Walking Directions from University of Glasgow Main Gates:
From University Avenue, walk through the main gates. Turn left and walk down a small incline across the car park. The Anatomy Museum is ahead of you, a low building with a ramp leading down to the entrace. It is not well sign-posted so take care! I will try to put up signs (rain, rain stay away) on the night. If you have any questions just let me know.
