It is with deep regret that we must announce that, due to a medical issue, Michael Moorcock can no longer join us in person this June. This is obviously more than a huge disappointment for us, but his health is the primary focus. However, whilst being unable to be here in person this year, he is eager to ‘join us’ via a video link, work on which is in progress. Michael’s health is the only consideration here and we hope everyone will understand this.

We are in communication and talking about working together in the future, we are looking forward to this immensely! Watch this space.

Please do still come along to ASDO and the Arts of Steam event, with the definite attendance of the fantastic KW Jeter, Rosie Garland, and a host of other writers, artists and makers, it promises to be a unique and awesome event.

Rosie Garland

To balance it up we thought we would invite female author
Rosie Garland to join us at A Splendid Day Out

Tagged ‘literary hero’ by The Skinny, Rosie is a novelist, poet and singer with post-punk band The March Violets. She also performs twisted cabaret as Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen, cabaret chanteuse and mistress of ceremonies. With a passion for language nurtured by libraries, she started out in spoken word, garnering praise from Apples and Snakes as ‘one of the country’s finest performance poets’.

Her award-winning short stories, poems and essays have been widely anthologised. She has six solo collections of poetry including ‘Everything Must Go’ (Holland Park Press 2012), which draws on her experience of throat cancer. Her new collection, ‘As In Judy’ (Flapjack Press) is out now. Rosie was awarded a Hawthornden Fellowship in 2017. She has also received the DaDa Award for Performance Artist of the Year, the Diva Award for Solo Performer, and a Poetry Award from the People’s Café, New York.
