Hello there

Jim Minton is a new writer of fiction, based in London but raised in the North East of England. On this website you can read his published works, which are mostly - but not all - darkly funny tales of growing up in Northumberland. You can also find out about Undertone, his new novel and read more about Jim, if you wish. All works are his copyright. So you can't pretend they are yours, even if you want to!

Swim Club - a new short story

I was invited to read at Red Army Fiction in Bethnal Green. It was a great night, real eclectic mix of spoken word, confessional, dead pan humour and poetry. I told a new story, Swim Club about a young lad growing up in the North East. It went down well. So well, I hope to be invited back! You can read it if you click the 'published writing' tab above. It's better if you read it out in a geordie accent after a couple of pints of cider, but hope it reads ok.
