Talented wordsmiths keen to polish their craft know all about Homework – the saloon in east London that promises a “night of literary miscellany” with impressive guest performers – Nick Hornby has rolled through – and the monthly challenge of a topical writing assignment (you don’t mind doing for once). Created by a clique of clever writers called Aisle16, Homework takes place six months in the year and so far, has touched on everything from true stories to transport – but it’s the season finale theme that’s peaked our interest. On November 27th, the night will be dedicated to the “art of the interview” and will explore everything we’ve come to know about chat shows. There will be a live interview, a special musical guest, a “palindromic play”, a few extras to make this not only a quality night out – for a fiver no less – but one event that’s guaranteed to give plenty of food for thought.
Homework takes place at the Bethnal Green Working Mens’ Club. For more info, visit: www.aisle16.co.uk/homework-ldn
