WIN 2 Tickets to : Real Life parenting: The Good, The Bad and The Funny

WIN 2 Tickets to : Real Life parenting: The Good, The Bad and The Funny at the Town Hall, Birmingham.


Real Life parenting: the good, the bad and the funny With Matt Coyne (Man vs Baby), Kathryn Wallace (“I Know, I Need To Stop Talking”) and more is taking place on Saturday 12 October at 2pm in Birmingham's Town Hall - Tickets cost : £10 / £8 (concs)

You have a baby, maybe you have two. Why not, it’ll all be ok. That’s what social media tell us. It’ll all be fine… So who is this person who now has baby sick on their t-shirt even when it’s clean on? Who always forgets something as they leave the house, or frequently turns up to work with their toddler’s toys in their bag? And why is the phrase “put your shoes on” so hard to understand?! 

Birmingham Literature Festival and Town Hall Symphony Hall are delighted to bring together a panel of well-known writers and bloggers who between them are sharing true stories of life at the coalface of parenting – with not an Instagram filter or hashtag in sight.

Liz Berry is a poet from the Black Country, who now lives in Birmingham. Her latest poetry pamphlet The Republic of Motherhood (Chatto, 2018) was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet choice and the title poem won the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem 2018.

Matt Coyne is the writer of the hugely popular Man vs Baby blog which has become a book of the same name. His new book Man vs Toddler was published this year.

Kathryn Wallace writes the I Know, I Need to Stop Talking blog which has led to her first book, Absolutely Smashing It, published this year.

Join the panel for an in-depth, funny and no doubt slightly surreal discussion about writing and what being a parent in 2019 is really like – and how we’re all actually doing a pretty good job at it.

If this sounds like something you'd like to attend, then you're in luck as the lovely people from Town Hall Birmingham have given me TWO tickets to give away to one of you, my lovely readers. I've been given TWO 2 House Seats tickets in the Circle - Woohoo!
