New Writing North

Honoured and delighted to have been shortlisted for the Big Issue’s New Writing in the North award. Looks like a strong shortlist: keep your fingers crossed for me.

Also: Martin Millar continues the Kalix adventure. John Niven has written The Information for the digital age. My review of Lottie Moggach’s brilliant debut, Kiss Me First, and of Paul Morley’s book on the North, which was not so brilliant.

    Hi Max, congrats on being shortlisted. I’m on the list too, and I recognised your name – I think because of Succour: I appeared in the Future issue, what seems like a long time ago. That was a good magazine, shame it vanished… that happens too often.

    I’m hoping to go to the event in Manchester. It would be good to meet you face to face. Anthony
