Unbound Diary Part 9 – Reading Aloud


Erinna Mettler's first novel, Starlings, was published in 2011 by Revenge Ink and was described by one reviewer thus:

'We read this and feel as though we know Brighton intimately, just as we get to know Baltimore inside and out in The Wire.'

Erinna is a founder and co-director of the spoken word collective Rattle Tales and the newly established Brighton Prize, the city’s only short story competition.
Her stories have been shortlisted for The Bristol Prize and The Writers & Artists Yearbook Arvon Award. Erinna has an MA (dist) in Creative Writing from The University of Sussex. Her stories have been published internationally but she has a special interest in writing for performance and her career highlight was having a story read at Latitude Festival by Gethin Anthony and Dianna Vickers.

Erinna has just signed to Unbound Publishing and is crowdfunding a short story collection on the theme of fame called 'In The Future Everyone Will Be World Famous For Fifteen Minutes,' which is open for pledges now.
