Illicit Ink is another innovation that's grown out of the MA Creative Writing course at Edinburgh Napier University. It runs themed prose reading nights at Cabaret Voltaire's Speakeasy venue on the Cowgate in central Edinburgh. The Illicit Ink team work with and support authors ahead of events, encouraging fun and risk-taking in both stories and performances. Bizarre experiements and collaborations are welcome.
Having sprung from the Edinburgh Napier MA, the team at Illicit Ink have a soft spot for supporting writing students from any programme. Recent events include horror-themed Monsters Ink in October, and a murder mystery evening in July. Next up is Time Will Tell on Sunday December 4th. If you want to read with Illicit Ink, click here.
