The White Review at International Anthony Burgess Foundation (IABF), Manchester, 30 April 2018, free entry - Visit now

Multiply praised arts and literature quarterly The White Review is in town with a showcase of talent and readings from recent contributors to the magazine (another contributor, Reke Scheffler, appears at the IABF earlier in the month; see here). Two happen to be working at The University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing – one, the Centre’s current writer in residence Kayo Chingonyi (alongside Joanna Walsh) is also poetry editor for TWR. He’ll be giving us a taste of his multi-prizelisted poetry debut Kumakanda, while the other, creative writing lecturer Luke Brown and author of the novel My Biggest Lie, will read from his forthcoming novel first extracted in the magazine.

Joining them are Sophie Mackintosh, winner of The White Review Story Prize 2016, and reading from her debut novel The Water Cure in its week of publication by Hamish Hamilton (who called her “a radical new voice in literary fiction” after they acquired the book following a seven-way auction). Nicole Flattery, winner of The White Review Story Prize 2017, meanwhile, will be previewing her forthcoming collection. The free event will be hosted by The White Review editors Željka Maroševic and Francesca Wade.
