Max Porter is Editorial Director at Granta Books where his authors include Han Kang, Eleanor Catton, Ben Marcus, Rebecca Solnit and Sarah Moss. His first novel, Grief Is the Thing with Feathers won the Sunday Times/Peter, Fraser + Dunlop Young Writer of the Year, the International Dylan Thomas Prize, the Europese Literatuurprijs and the BAMB Readers' Award and was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and the Goldsmiths Prize. It has been sold in thirty territories. Complicité and Wayward's production of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers directed by Enda Walsh and starring Cillian Murphy opened in Dublin in March 2018 and will tour in 2019.
The theme for this event is mythologising. Each of the three speakers will respond as they see fit - with a new piece of literature or an informal talk, an academic lecture or a performance. They might shape a previous work to the theme or create brand new fiction, non-fiction, theatre or poetry. Their choice of medium is as creatively free as their choice of message. Each presentation will last around ten minutes.
This event will be opened with short new collaborative texts made especially for the night, from students and alumni of Kingston University and writers local to Writers' Centre Kingston.
