Why do we give primacy to waking rather than dream experience? What is the nature of symbol? What might the concept of authorship mean? Linguistically playful, lyrical and poignant, Vitus Dreams explores these questions through surprising and convincing characters: from Ulysses to John Franklin, from the wives left behind to Vitus Bering himself. Weaving mythology with visually inventive passages, the text ranges from Russia to Bruges, from sea to land, from meta-fiction to concrete poetry.
Adam Craig has been writing tall tales since the age of ten. His non-fiction has appeared in local and national magazines, while his short stories have been published in several anthologies. He has previously published two ebooks of short fables with Cinnamon Press.
Adam will be joined on the night by local writer Jez Noond. After many years working as a visual artist, Jez completed a creative writing masters degree with NTU in 2013. This year, his short fiction has been long-listed for the Bristol Short Story Prize and found publication with Cinnamon Press.
