Many congratulations to the fabulous R A Martens for triumphing at Literary Death Match in Edinburgh on Tuesday. R A, who was representing Illicit Ink, burst through the opening heats with her story The Women of Venus, which she’d previously performed at our space-themed gig, When Words Collide. A close-run battle of Literary Play Your Cards Right against Andrew C Ferguson saw our heroine reign victorious after a nail-biting sudden death tie break.
R A Martens is a writer in Edinburgh and received a new writer’s award from the Scottish Book Trust for 2010/11. She can been found tweeting away at @raarmar.
