Title: TTA 'Events'
Post by: Roy on June 19, 2010, 11:37:37 pm
For those of you living in or near England's Northwest around June 25 and 26 weekend there will be readings and performances at this year's Manchester Independent Publishers' Book Market ( in St Ann’s Square central Manchester. Among the Saturday readers will be TTA regulars Nick Royle, Conrad Williams and Tim Lees. My apologies to any whose names I didn't recognise in the list.
TTA will be there with a stall full of Interzones, Black Statics,  a few Cern Zoos, some The Harms, Alisons, Islington Crocodiles etc
Round of 16 match 1C v 2D which might yet feature England is on at 8:30 Saturday evening, as I read the FIFA timetable, and the market will have been long closed by then.

A communication from Comma Press listing readings and timings at the Manchester Independent Book Markets return this Friday and Saturday, St Ann's Square, Manchester, UK. (10am-5pm)

The Book Market brings the best independently produced novels, poetry, short fiction, art books, si-fi, horror and non-fiction right to your doorstep, at a time when high street bookshops are growing increasingly conservative...
Situated in the bustling St Ann’s Square, just off Deansgate, the market’s a great place to browse, grab a coffee, buy a book, and listen to live readings from a selection of talented performance poets and authors.
Aspiring writers can also meet representatives from the North’s finest independent presses – including Comma Press, Carcanet, Dewi Lewis, Tindal Street, Route, Crocus, Flax, Interzone, and many others. So if you’re an aspiring writer, why not make contact with publishers and put your name about?

Live readings timings: Friday and Saturday, from 12pm – 5pm (

There is also a chance to win a mini library from the Manchester Book (and Art) Market. From mystery to autobiography, they’re giving away a library for book lovers, all to celebrate the Manchester Independent Book Market. See link for more (

We are now one week away from our Twitter Zinechat. 23:00 GMT Tuesday 14 Dec.

To find Zinechat: log on twitter. Then on the right-hand navigation bar on the main Twitter page, there is a search box. (Find People) Just type in #zinechat there, and find the stream. Follow the #zinechat hashtag, and mark all of your responses with #zinechat. This allows users who do not follow any of us to see all posts and responses.

This will be an open forum: hopefully lots of people asking all sorts of questions, which may be tricky as we hope to have 3 or 4 of us online answering. Those numbers will decline after midnight so get there early. You can try it anytime as there is stuff on Zinechat ( now.

2011 Manchester Independent Publishers Book Market ( 17 & 18 June in St Ann's Square outside the Royal Exchange Theatre
It's on again this year and TTA will be there with new and back issues of Interzone, Black Static and other goodies. like Crimewave, Alison and The Harm. There will be readings and poetry at the market and TTA published authors will be included in the readers and it is a good opportunity for authors to meet local publishers like Comma Press.
