Sledge-Lit 2016 – Science Fiction Fantasy and Horror writing event

21 November 2016
Sledge-Lit 2016, a day of panel discussions, workshops, readings and networking for readers and writers of science-fiction, fantasy and horror returns for a second year, adding a festive addition to the annual Edge-Lit event at QUAD.

The full line-up of authors and speakers for the day have been confirmed, offering a range of local and national writing talent. Guests of honour, Justina Robson and Stephen Volk will be joined by British Fantasy Award winning horror author Mark Morris; New York Times Bestseller Gav Thorpe; British Fantasy Award nominee KT Davies; dark fantasy author Freda Warrington and Paul Kane, author of the Sherlock Holmes/Hellraiser crossover Sherlock Holmes and The Servants of Hell.

Sledge-Lit workshops will feature subjects such as ‘Social Media for Writers’, ‘Writing Non-Fiction’ and ‘Performing Your Work’; with panel discussions exploring the value of literary awards, the resurgence of short fiction and whether horror has become too narrow a genre. 

QUAD’s Literature Officer and Sledge-Lit Alex Davis said: “I’m delighted with the line-up for Sledge-Lit 2, which includes many authors I’ve been looking to work with for a long time and speakers who will bring a lot of fascinating perspectives to the panels and workshops on the day. When you add them to two great Guests of Honour you’ve got all the components for a fantastic day of genre fiction!”

Sledge-Lit takes place in QUAD on 26th November from 10:30am to 7:00pm, tickets are £25 covering all the activities on the day and an event goodie bag. For more information or to book tickets, click here or call QUAD Box Office on 01332 290606.
