Then let me begin

I have written about The Moth before and idly thought about trying to start a similar storytelling event in London, while I was being idle David Hepworth has gone and done it. True Stories Told Live is beginning in a small way but will doubtless blossom into something very popular. I look forward to podcasts, compilation CD's and T-shirts.

In a similar vein, Matt Locke is taking the plunge and organising his own event all about storytelling. Judging by the enthusiasm in the comments section it will be a rip-roaring success. And then of course there is Salena Godden's Book Club Boutique hosted every Monday at Dick's Bar in Soho.
