Nine debut authors, students and alumni of University College London (UCL), present their original short stories in this cross-cultural, bilingual event.
Sometimes, the shortest stories leave us thinking for the longest time. Entre ínsulas y penínsulas: haiku narrativo y otros microcuentos (Seville 2017) brings together fifty pieces of microfiction. These represent the creative efforts of a group of students who are mastering Spanish as a second language at UCL’s School of European Languages, Literature and Culture. Writing in the heart of London, the authors look towards the literary traditions of the Hispanic world. Their anthology comprises a wonderful variety of memorable characters and narratives, ranging from a superstitious black cat to the frustration of the world’s greatest cartographer, from an alternative Tower of Babel, to the Odyssey in miniature.
Participants: Tyler Fisher, Alice Franklin, Catherine George, Jeff Gu, H. M. Harrington, Indira Holzer, Livia Lack, Sam Stevenson, Charlotte Toon, Ros Turkie.
In English and Spanish.
