WoWFest: Fiction Trumps Trump

  • Blackburne House Blackburne Place (Off Hope Street) Liverpool, L8 7PE (map)

WoW hosts a celebration of writers published in anthologies that, in some way, respond to the world’s most powerful tangerine in a toupee. Join us for a refreshing cup of covfefe and help us MAKE FICTION GREAT AGAIN. What are we saying, that’s clearly fake new, fiction’s always been great, but the truth is often stranger.

Scottish 404 Ink’s Nasty Women has been an absolute triumph – tweeted by Margaret Atwood, the anthology has received international acclaim. Sim Bajwa will read from this deliciously nasty collection of work about what it actually means to be a woman today.

Reading from Saqi Book’s Don’t Panic I’m Islamic is Bidisha, British writer, film-maker and presenter for the BBC TV and radio, Channel 4 news and Sky News and is a trustee of the Booker Prize Foundation. Featuring cartoons, graffiti, photography, colouring in pages and more this subversive anthology is an explosion of expression, creativity and colour.

Comma Press’s Banthology brings together specially commission stories from seven of Trumps “banned nations”. Experience a reading by Zaher Omareen, we’ll explore the emotional and personal impacts of all restrictions on movement.
