The one thing I felt was missing from last year’s Eroticon was a chance for all us writers to read our work, and share it with the other delegates. So when Ruby asked me to organise an evening of erotic reading for Eroticon 2013, I was delighted.
I had a lot of interest from writers wanting to read their work, and paring it down to nine was a tough job, but I think what we have now is a group who will deliver a lot of filth, a little romance, and some diversity from the world of sex writing.
I am also very excited to announce that I have procured the compering services of burlesque and cabaret performers Miss Glory Pearl and Miss Maybe. These two lovely ladies are the producers of Wanton Words & Burlesque Bombshells which is “a unique cabaret night featuring author readings of erotic fiction with comedy, sketches, [and] lashings of burlesque”. They say “ it’s guaranteed to make you laugh, quite likely to make you blush”. They are bringing to us several sketches, a touch of comedy, and an audience competition.
And to top it all off we have an excellent venue in the “spacious yet cozy” Lock, Stock Bar – “once known […] as Bison Bar [it has been] renamed in honour of its cameo appearance in Guy Ritchie’s cult films Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” – which can be found just two tube stops away from the Eroticon venue on Coin Street. Here readers and audience members-alike can purchase alcohol (or a drop of dutch-courage, if necessary).
The Lock, Stock Bar is located on the ground floor of Journeys London Bridge Hostel, which offers very cheap accommodation if anyone is still looking for a place to stay! and of course, if you haven’t bought your Eroticon ticket yet you’d better do it soon! as we are now less than three weeks away.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me – Harper Eliot – on harper (at) itgirlragdoll dot com. I look forward to seeing you all at Eroticon!
