The North by North West Poetry Tour at International Anthony Burgess Foundation (IABF), Manchester, 14 January–11 February 2017, free entry - Visit now

The Enemies Project is an ongoing collaboration of contemporary poets, mainly, but also prose writers and sound and visual artists. The North by North West Poetry Tour has already popped up in York, Manchester and Edge Hill, with Leeds Wharf Chambers next (9 February, 7.30pm), then Sheffield Bank Street Arts (10 February, 7.30pm) and finally Liverpool Everyman on Saturday 11 February (7.30pm). All events are free.

Eighty-odd writers will be joining forces across the six dates to produce more than 60 collaborative works created specifically for performance on the tour in January and February 2017.

At the events, there is a core group of six touring poets: project lynchpins SJ Fowler and Tom Jenks, co-founder and host of Manchester’s top experimental poetry night The Other Room, plus Linda Kemp, Robert Sheppard, Christopher Stephenson and JT Welsch. Alongside, poets local to each area will perform. Contributors include Richard Barrett, Jazmine Linklater and Alec Newman, headliners at November’s Verbose; Fat Roland of Manchester’s Bad Language; live literature scene regulars Geraldine Monk, Lauren Bolger, Joey Frances and David Gaffney, and BBC Radio 3’s The Verb presenter Ian McMillan.
