Stories submitted by guests are dissected, chopped up, and improved through an intensive process of live editing and debate.
The next Butcher's Shop will be a special sci-fi themed night re-imagining the human body through literature and science, and exploring the utopian possibilities of technological enhancement.
Guests include: Cory Doctorow (Boing Boing blog hero and author of Little Brother), Gwyneth Jones (author of the Arthur C.Clarke Award winning Bold As Love), Ian Watson (co-author of the screenplay for A.I., and a former Stanley Kubrick collaborator) and Matthew de Abaitua (author of The Red Men).
Want to take part? You can submit stories of 350 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3 September.
All stories should address the theme of "transhumanism" - the theory and practise of using technology to enhance the human mind and body.
