Scylla And Charybdis

Parisians Are So French

EGerry Feehily describes Paris during the first days of lockdown. It's incredible. Just listen already. You can subscribe to our newsletter by visiting www.galleybeggar.co.uk - you'll also find Gerry's story Gunk there, if you can't wait for it to arrive by email... The National Centre For Writing, who I mention at the end (under their old name of The Writers Centre! Oops!) have a lot of really good activities and resources available during lockdown: https://nationalcentreforwriting.org.uk

Galley Beggar Podcast #9 Preti Taneja

E"I last saw Jeet at the last public event I attended before the UK’s pandemic lockdown – it was in London, for a memorial. After the service, we drank, and talked; and mingled briefly in the crowd; we parted without saying goodbye. So this book as an object holds layers of meaning: memories of travel and of both happy and sad times spent with friends." Preti Taneja thinks about the writer Jeet Thayil and reads from Fulcrum NO. 4, an edition in which Thayil edited a selection of 56 Indian poets under the (beautiful!) title Give the Sea Change and It Shall Change. Writers Preti references include: Henry Derozio, Nissim Ezekiel, Srikanth Reddy, Mukta Sambrani. She also discusses Threads, by Sandeep Parmar, Bhanu Kapil and Nisha Ramayya and Debt Night, a piece she herself wrote in Detours.

Galley Beggar Press Podcast #4: Short Stories

EA conversation with five writers who were on the longlist of the 2018-2019 short story prize… (So if you’re listening in February 2020, as this podcast comes out, the prize from last year, not the longlist we have recently announced.) The writers are: Alice Ash, Holly Fitzgerald, Thomas Chadwick, Nicholas Petty, Laura Kaye. We spoke in early January 2020 in a surprisingly posh sweet in the Goodenough Club on Mecklenberg Square in London.
