Just a little while ago, Kim Curran triumphantly took on our inaugural 1,001 Nights challenge. And now Kirsty Logan is stepping up to the plate.
1,001 Nights is our brand-new, 100% online literary shindig, where everyone can join in. From your bed, on the bus, from places other than London. We’re all in this together, via the magic of Twitter. And here’s how it works:
This Monday, the 30th, Kirsty will be writing a 1,001 word story. Live. Online. And we’ll be asking you for everything she’ll need to do that: characters, a location, an opening line. We’ll be asking for those things using the hashtag #1001logan, so keep your eyes peeled.
Kirsty’s going to kick off her story at 8pm. And every so often we’ll ask you what the next line should be. Or what drink we should buy Kirsty next.
So meet us there, Challenge Fans. Twitter, Monday night, 8pm. #1001logan.
