In partnership with Creative Tourist and the Blog North Network, we are expanding this year’s Blog Awards to celebrate the best online writing from across the region. Adam Christopher, whose alternate-Gotham superhero noir Empire State (Angry Robot) was described by The Guardian as ‘a truly original debut’, will be reading from his new book, Seven Wonders. The event will also feature the launch of Comma Press’ new experiment in literary social networking: the Turing Text. (For more details of how to participate in this unique micro-blogging game, visit turingtext.com.) Plus there will be readings from the finest Northern bloggers and, of course, the star-studded awards themselves. For entry and shortlist information, visit blognorthawards.com.
