Our good pals and fellow live literature promoters over at Tales of the Decongested are retiring - oh noes! But if you fancy taking up the reins and stepping in to event-manage one of London's longest-established short story nights, read on ... it's a great opportunity if fiction is your thing, so email them if you're interested.
"Dear Short Story Lovers,
after five fabulous years of Tales of the DeCongested, Paul and Rebekah feel the time has come for new faces, fresh energy and ideas to take the event forward. We are seeking a team of two or more people interested in taking over the event.
If you think you might be interested in running this high profile event at a leading independent bookshop, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Think of it as a proposal, of a rather informal variety. We'd especially like to hear what new ideas you have, what you like about the existing event, and what you think you might change.
We'll give careful consideration and respond to all and any proposals. In due course, we'd also like to meet our potential successors. After five years you tend to get a bit possessive. We'd like to be sure we're passing the baby on to the very best of new parents!
Rebekah and Paul"
