In Process Masterclass with Douglas Thompson @ Centre for Contemporary Arts
Oct 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Douglas ThompsonOur very own Douglas Thompson will be leading an ‘In Process Masterclass’ for the Scottish Writers’ Centre in Glasgow, on Tuesday 27th October 2015 at 7pm. Douglas is one of Glasgow’s most original exponents of dark surreal fiction. Described as “a name to watch” by Interzone magazine Douglas has published eight books of which Elsewhen Press have published two: Entanglement and The Rhymer, an Heredyssey. He will also be launching his ninth book, The Sleep Corporation (Exaggerated Press) at the masterclass.

The evening is billed as a diverse and unorthodox exploration of the art of writing from the perspective of someone implacably opposed to the sameness and complacency of major commercial publishers. Sounds like fun!
