The White Review’s editors Željka Maroševic and Francesca Wade introduce an evening of readings from recent contributors to the literary magazine described by Deborah Levy as ‘nothing less than a cultural revolution’.

The White Review’s poetry editor Kayo Chingonyi, and writer in residence at the Centre for New Writing, will read from his multi-prizelisted poetry debut Kumakanda. Sophie Mackintosh, winner of the White Review Story Prize 2016, will read from her debut novel The Water Cure in its week of publication. Luke Brown, lecturer in creative writing at The University of Manchester, and author of My Biggest Lie, will read from his forthcoming novel first extracted in the magazine, and Nicole Flattery, the last winner of the White Review story prize, joins us from Ireland, for a preview of her forthcoming collection.
