WRITERS’ BLOC is Edinburgh’s premier spoken-word performance group, with a ten-year legacy of innovative and entertaining shows showcasing some of the capital’s foremost fiction writers. Recent shows include: Electric Lit Orchestra, part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival’s Unbound strand; Brave New Words at the Edinburgh Science Festival; and FANtasia at Eastercon, the British National Science Fiction Convention, in London. Other events have ranged from Mr Big Society to The Slime of Miss Jean Brodie, and Doyle M for Murder (part of the Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature programme).
Now in preparation is a daring, dangerous and diabolical show for Halloween.
In the months running up to All Hallows’ Eve, the members of Writers’ Bloc have been contacting the spirits of the dead – invoking the shades of literary giants, and using spirit guides to produce terrifying tales of The Other Side.
On Halloween, Writers’ Bloc invites you to a thrilling live séance at The Bongo Club. Using black magic and cutting-edge technology, Bloc will command the dead to speak, or at least tip some literary tables over. You will see them rise from the grave, and catch a thrilling glimpse of the ghosts, demons and bogles who reside beyond this mortal coil.
Come and witness the birth of a new literary movement: SÉANCE FICTION.
