Food, Days Out and Travel stories from Brighton, London and the Rest of the World


Sticky Mike's Flash Lit Fict 11 Sept 11

As part of the Brighton Digital Festival, Paragraph Planet, Grit Lit and Story Studios, are collaborating on an evening that is experimental in nature and is aimed at bringing together the literary and digital worlds.  Running throughout September the Brighton Digital Festival is worth exploring in more detail, but this event in itself holds enough of a draw to warrant a post of its own.
Recommended by a friend, who is one of those people who not only has at least one novel in them, but has written it and is being published this autumn, also very exciting and deserving a post, so stay tuned.

Sticky Mike's Frog Bar, Brighton

The evening will consist of short shorts, flash writing and digital technologies, at the heart of which will be a 300-word flash fiction slam competition and an online Twitter story competition, with competitors battling it out for fame and glory.

» To enter the Twitter story competition: use #FLF11

» To enter flash fiction slam: post your name on the Facebook event wall or email

The theme is 21st century and the Twitter and slam winners will be announced on the night. Judging panels will include representatives from Grit Lit, Story Studios Paragraph Planet and Myriad Editions.

As an established Kemptown resident I like to keep my ear to the ground for anything exciting to post about and this latest gig of Soul Casserole's is promising to be worth the fiver entry charge.

The Great Brighton Bake Off - registration ends next Sunday 14th August

With my own commitment to cake baking beginning when I saw the iced cup cake on the front of Nigella Lawson's recipe book, which made me think, I wanna do that, I've had an enduring interest in baking ever since.  Over time I was given, bought, inherited baking paraphernalia and slowly built up a repertoire of trusted recipes, with a small amount of improvisation.  The love affair continued and I can now bake some good solid fare although I still can't bake decent cupcakes and my presentation skills are a bit lacking.  To say the least, the very least.



A Guide to summer shakes and smoothies in Brighton

With summer on its way and temperatures on the up, in UK terms, it's time to grab an ice-cold quencher at one of the smoothie making stores to suck on while you mooch about town or for chilling with on the beach.
