'Highly Prized, Highly Priced'

Posted at 7:59PM Thursday 26 Apr 2012

It took a while, but we've built up a loyal following. Up to 500 people attend each event, more than 100,000 listen to our podcasts and we have a dedicated mailing list of 20,000. Last year, therefore, we decided to move into publishing and, in November, brought out One For The Trouble – Book Slam Vol. 1, our first annual, collecting newly-commissioned writing from the event's alumni including Irvine Welsh, William Boyd and Helen Oyeyemi.
