The last resort

Slough of Despond has a lot of writers passing through, and one of the things we have to do is take a look over the copy for the next season’s brochure and try to spice it up a bit. I’ve been working on their text:

‘The Slough of Despond is truly the last resort. There is no emergency exit and no safety procedures – we crash, you die.’

Whoever was here last had written ‘Abandon hope, all ye who enter here’ – which is a naff bit of Dante-snaffling and too much of a cliché. And it doesn’t sound very exciting – there has to be a bit of a challenge.
