Hotel was a short-lived independent anthology series for experimental literatures in English and first-time English language translation; a magazine, both in print and online, that sought to provide temporary accommodation for otherwise homeless ideas.

Seven years on from the publication of Hotel #1 (2016), and in tribute to the cessation of the “paper hotel” with the publication of Hotel #7 (2021), Seven Rooms anthologises works from across the Hotel series to showcase the project’s unerring commitment to pioneering creativity, literature’s idiosyncrasies, and shared space; to new approaches to fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

Seven Rooms includes works by Mario Dondero, Erica Baum, Jess Cotton, Rebecca Tamás, Stephen Watts, Helen Cammock, Salvador Espriu, Lucy Mercer, Lucy Sante, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, Ryan Choi, John Yau, Nicolette Polek, Chris Petit, Sascha Macht, Amanda DeMarco, Mark Lanegan, Vala Thorodds, Richard Scott, Joshua Cohen, Hannah Regel, Nick Cave, Daisy Lafarge, Holly Pester, Matthew Gregory, Olivier Castel, Emmanuel Iduma, Joan Brossa, Cameron Griffiths, Imogen Cassels, Hisham Bustani, Maia Tabet, Raúl Guerrero, Velimir Khlebnikov, Natasha Randall, Edwina Attlee, Matthew Shaw, Aidan Moffat, Lesley Harrison, Oliver Bancroft, Lauren de Sá Naylor, Will Eaves, Sandro Miller, Jim Hugunin, Levina van Winden, Aram Saroyan, Glykeria Patramani, Will Oldham, Antonio Tabucchi, Yasmine Seale, Elizabeth Harris, Nina Mingya Powles, Isabel Galleymore, Jason Shulman, Jeffrey Vallance, Preti Taneja, Stanley Schtinter, Wayne Koestenbaum, Sophie Seita, Ralf Webb, Jonathan Chandler, Iain Sinclair, SJ Fowler, Cass McCombs, David Grubbs, Agustín Fernández Mallo, Pere Joan, Thomas Bunstead, Adrian Bridget and John Divola, with a foreword from editors Dominic J. Jaeckle & Jess Chandler, and an afterword from London’s perpetual neon light, Gareth Evans.

Copies of the anthology will be for sale on the night, or can be ordered direct from Prototype Publishing or Tenement Press.
