Live From Worktown Short Story Course at The Gallery at St George’s House, Bolton, 11 October–22 November 2016, from £30.00 - Book now
Throughout October and November, and into December, Greater Manchester borough Bolton won’t know what’s hit it as literature pops up everywhere, from the streets to the Socialist Club. Live From Worktown is a local arts organisation that encourages creative writing and performance, and highlights include Bolton’s monthly poetry showcase, Word Cabaret, with host Jodie Smith-Richardson, and the Into The Light anthology launch in December, when open submissions published alongside work from the ongoing creative writing programmes, led by Julie McKiernan, will be presented to the public.
Meanwhile, flash fiction expert David Gaffney, whose Powerlines project showcased at Manchester Literature Festival, is heading up a four-date short story course, in conjunction with Business Bolton and Creative Industries Trafford. Everyone is welcome at the final workshop on Tuesday 22 November (6.30pm, £5 on the door for no-course members), when acclaimed author David will be joined by publisher Nathan Connolly, of Dead Ink Books, and live literature promoter Fat Roland, co-host of monthly Manchester night Bad Language, for a panel discussion and Q&A about publishing, promotion and performance.
