LITERATURE

WORLDBUILDING
'GAME NIGHT'

Join us for an event like no other: a worldbuilding ‘game night’ in which we challenge some of the best speculative fiction writers in the game – Bridget Collins, Guy Morpuss, and Tim Tilley – to build a world live, based on questions, prompt cards, or the rolls of a dice. 10 July, Wessex Arts. 

BRIDGET COLLINS trained as an actor at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art after reading English at King's College, Cambridge. She is the author of seven acclaimed books for young adults and has had two plays produced, one at the Edinburgh Fringe. She is the No. 1 bestselling author of The Binding and The Betrayals. The Silence Factory is her third adult novel.

GUY MORPUSS writes speculative crime fiction: twisting one aspect of the real world, adding a dead body, and playing with the consequences.  His first novel, Five Minds (Viper Books) was a Financial Times Book of the Year. His second novel, Black Lake Manor (Viper Books) was a Financial Times SF Book of the Month and a Waterstones Best Crime Book of the Year.  Before taking up full-time writing Guy practised as a QC in London, dealing with cases featuring drug-taking cyclists, dead Formula 1 champions and aspiring cemetery owners. He is currently finishing his third novel, due to be published by Viper Books in early 2025. 

 

TIM TILLEY is an author and illustrator of children’s books. His debut novel, Harklights, won the Joan Aiken Future Classics Prize and was Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month. Witchstorm, the follow-up, continued to explore eco-themes, friendship and family. He is currently working on his next book, but won’t tell you the title just yet.
