Join us at Shoreline of Infinity’s Event Horizon – Online!

While we’re all hunkering down for a while, we thought we’d experiment with bringing a little something of our Event Horizons to your own home.

Events, book launches, conventions, festivals – all gatherings are cancelled, so we are offering Event Horizon as a platform for published writers in the first instance. We are asking them to tell us a story, read an extract from a new release and send us their video – to phone it in, if you like.

We’re asking for 5-12 minutes, which is just about the same time-slot for each act at an Event Horizon.

So, grab yourself a drink, sit back, and let’s all enjoy a story.

Noel Chidwick, Editor-in-Chief, Shoreline of Infinity

What is Event Horizon?
