Jonathan Kemp at SICK! Festival, Manchester

Jonathan Kemp

Jonathan Kemp will take part in a panel discussion on the subject of sex and sexuality at 3pm this Sunday afternoon, as part of Manchester’s S!CK Festival.

Does the easy online accessibility of pornography pose a threat to young people? Does it stand in the way of developing a healthy attitude to love and sex, or does it provide useful information for beginners? These panels bring together writers with wide-ranging interests in sex and sexuality for a full and frank discussion. Jonathan will appear alongside authors Paul Burston and Emma-Jane Unsworth and Professor of Sexual Cultures at the University of Sunderland, Clarissa Smith.

Jonathan Kemp is the author of London TriptychTwentysix and new novel Ghosting. He currently teaches creative writing and literature at Birkbeck, University of London, and his fiction has appeared in Chroma, the online queer literary journal PolariBrand Magazine, Best Gay Erotica 2010, and Best Gay Short Stories 2010.
