Tuesday 25 January
The first Telltales of 2011 will be on  at The Rum Bar, above Nancy’s in Falmouth.
For Telltales it has been an epic year. They’ve held monthly packed out reading nights and showcased some exciting new talent, hosted a  slot at Port Eliot Festival where the great and the good of the literary world were bowled over by  Telltales writers, and slogged hard to publish their first anthology, The Parabola Project, which is going down a treat with readers out there.

The theme for this month’s Telltales is Elements; think science and wonder, raw emotions, different aspects of ourselves and whatever else the word conjures up for you. If you’re interested in reading out your work, you can submit through the Telltales website, we’ll have a read and then let you know if you’ve been successfully programmed.  Poems, prose, short stories, novel extracts, travel journals – anything goes, the only rules are that it should be an original piece of work, written by the reader.

If you have any questions get in touch, we look forward to reading your work and seeing you all on the 25 January at The Rum Bar.
