University of Manchester New Writing Anthology Launch 2016 at International Anthony Burgess Foundation (IABF), Manchester, 8 September 2016, free entry

This event at IABF celebrates the launch of the latest edition of The Manchester Anthology, a showcase of the work produced each year by students from the Creative Writing MA course at the University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing.

This brand-new collection brings together the exciting and varied work of the class of 2015-16, and features poetry, prose and plays, and pieces from the book will be performed on the night. What’s more, you can expect something special from the award-winning poet John McAuliffe, who has written the foreword for the edition.

One of the Centre for New Writing’s co-directors (alongside bookies favourite to win the Man Booker Prize, Ian McGuire), John’s acclaimed fourth collection of poetry, The Way In, launched at last year’s Manchester Literature Festival and he has been described by Thomas McCarthy as ‘a poet’s poet, an immortal watchman in poetry, a guardian sent to mind the guardians’.

Entry is free, but we strongly recommend booking in advance
