The Readings

Oz read his mystical ‘Oswyn’s Tree’, Cathy a selection of her poems, ranging from darkest druidary (see the back cover of ‘Old Magic’) to the London Underground, Andy gave us his ‘Ash Lady’ – one of several original takes on ‘Cinderella’ from the anthology. Therese read ‘One’ –  which was one of two stories she had in the top ten in the Legend comp, (and she entered a third that very nearly made it). David gave us a heart-warming account of his marketing efforts in York (lots of people wanted to buy the snazzy pouch he was displaying the book in!) and a great rendition of his story ‘Jenny’ and Rachel read her ‘Tissue of Lies’, a fairytale with a real kick to it, whilst her young deputy cooed sweetly in the background.

 

Artists Katy Jones and Catherine Edmunds also gave us a display of fantasy and myth-related art, including pieces which they had prepared especially for Old Magic
