Word Dogs - the running in circles trying to bite your tail at Halloween bash

Glasgow's spoken word event, Word Dogs, returns at Halloween for a night of Horror, and stuff! We'll be gathering at Cafe Hula at the top of Hope Street on Sunday 31st October, 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Cafe Hula has its very own skeleton looking down from above - you can't miss it - and the skeleton has agreed to be a judge if anyone cares to turn up in fancy dress.

We'll take stories, poems, extracts, plays, a visit from your great Aunty Flo whom you have just dug up from her grave - if you bring enough air freshner, that is; hell, we'll even welcome a zombie on a leash.

Submissions made up of any of the above (except the icky body parts) should be no longer than 2500 words, please (this is a strict submission rule, anything longer than that will be rejected unread) – and should be sent to:

Ian Hunter at ihunter24601@hotmail.com

Don't worry, I alone, am not the all-powerful junta, G.W. Colkitto is the real power behind my throne

Please send your submissions to me by the 10th of October, that's ages away, so no excuses.

G.W. and I look forward to be touched by your Halloween horrors, and promise not to contact "Crimewatch" for that reward, you sickos.

Ian

Do you want just original work Ian, or will you look at reprints?

We'll take reprints, in fact, I might be submitting one myself!

The submissions are flowing in, but since the regular crowd have still to give us something we're extending the deadline, initially until the 20th, even as far as the 25th as we've listed the event on Literature Training - www.literaturetraining.com - check out the "Jobs and Opportunities" tab.

Ha! In that case I'll hang fire until I see how big a fool I make of myself at the Music For Another World launch. If I start channelling Norman Wisdom then I might not submit anything.

Jim, we want you there, or else! I've seen you at WordDogs, in the company of other Steels, but I don't think I've read you read - bring your story, your cap and ill-fitting blazer and Norman lives - eat your heart out Lee Evans!

Ian

Since it's a spoken-word event, does that imply you only want subs from people who can turn up and read their stuff? Or does it not work like that? (sorry if I'm being thick).

Cheers, Mike

Mike

Thanks for the query, but you don't have to be there. At the previous - Weird Love - WordDogs we read on behalf of people who couldn't make it, and this time some members of the Ghost Story Society who live in America have submitted something, so we'd be more than happy to read for you.

best

Ian

Thanks to everyone who came along - we had nine in the audience - and eight readers. The readers would have won the tug-of-war competition had two people turned up on the night, but they were ill. The evening was split into three (!) halves, but since the first half over-ran slightly, I pulled the story I was going to read and read some poems instead. All in all, I thought there were some great new stuff by the likes of Mark Harding and Al Duncan, and great older stuff which fitted the theme and great stuff read on behalf of others, particularly from Peter Tennent and the Karen Ellery, Reggie Oliver, M. R. James piece which started the whole night off. Having been heavily involved in running WordDogs the last few years I thought I might give the next one a miss, but already I can feel the notion of "Weird Love 2" the WordDogs antidote to St. Valentine's Day" calling at me across the void - arf, arf!
