Dostoyevsky Wannabe is at the forefront of 21st century independent and avant-garde publishing, championing innovative authors from across the world with beautifully designed publications.
Devised and organised by SJ Fowler under the Enemies Project banner to function as a launch of his own book with Dostoyevsky Wannabe, and also featuring a number of other authors publishing with the press, this mini tour begins on Saturday 22 February at the Rich Mix Arts Centre in Shoreditch, East London: with SJ Fowler, Christodoulos Makris, Nadia de Vries, Dominic Jaeckle, Andrew Hodgson, James Davies, Jessica Sequeira, Paul Hawkins, Colin Herd, and Russell Bennetts.
The following evening (Sunday 23 February) we will be in North London at the long-established Torriano Meeting House in Kentish Town: featuring Nadia de Vries, Dominic Jaeckle, Andrew Hodgson, Jessica Sequeira, Christodoulos Makris, Paul Hawkins, Colin Herd, SJ Fowler and Russell Bennetts.
And on Tuesday 25 February we will decamp to The Museum of Futures in Surbiton, Kingston, for 'Delusions of Grandeur': "a celebration of the press Dostoyevsky Wannabe with an event themed around the self congratulatory, grandiose, deluded and overly devised." With readings, alongside experimental or theatrical performance, speeches, talks, recitals and everything in between, excluding academic lectures, from Christodoulos Makris, Nadia de Vries, Jessica Sequeira, SJ Fowler and Russell Bennetts - plus Eugene Kim, Hannah Ballou and Matthew Birchwood.
Full details, including all start times and links to books by all featured writers, on the Enemies Project website.
