Fiction Canteen in Exile | Flaws–Vices | 25th June 2017 | ausland


Reality is not black and white. It is full of grey tones. But how do these shades intersect, and how do they differ? Flaws–vices is our next Fiction Canteen theme.

We have been in exile before: now we are in ausland.
We are looking for up to 4 outstanding texts to be read, and an enthusiastic audience willing to give their ideas. 
As usual, if in doubt, submit rather than not!
Please send texts by Thursday 22 June to

Lucy & Anton
