Writers Locked in Flux

Writers Grant Bailie, Laurie Stone and Ranbir Sidhu will be locked in cubicles from May 7 to June 4, when they are supposed to each start and finish a novel. Flux Factory, the sponsor, calls the event "NOVEL: A Living Installation."

Flux Factory says that "NOVEL takes the isolation of the writer to a rather extreme conclusion in order to investigate what will be produced under those conditions. But, just as writing is solitary, it is also a performance. The writer, sitting alone, is always conscious of an audience, whoever that may be. NOVEL combines the private and public aspects of writing in a striking way. The goal for NOVEL is to facilitate the production of quality fiction and explore the act of writing itself as a performance, installation, and kinetic, living sculpture."

My Night Train colleague Tom Jackson had a chance to catch up with Grant before he goes under lock and key.
