Verbose: Bare Fiction at Fallow Café at Fallow Cafe, Manchester, 26 September 2016, free entry - Visit now

Monthly live literature night Verbose is back from its summer holidays, with a treat of prose and poetry performances, including three headliners, each sharing a connection, and the usual ten-strong open mic. The headline slots this month are filled by Michael Conley, Rosie Garland and Rachel Mann, all contributors to literary periodical Bare Fiction, which promotes new creative writing.

Michael has published two poetry pamphlets, Aquarium (Flarestack Poets) and More Weight (Eyewear). Under her spangled belt, Rosie has two novels, The Palace of Curiosities and Vixen, with a third, The Night Brother, due out next spring. Her sixth collection of poetry is published this year by Flapjack Press. Rachel is resident poet at Manchester Cathedral and the author of three books, with The Great War, Memory & Symbol being published in spring 2017. Bare Fiction have writing competitions closing on 31 October, so this is your opportunity to check out standards before submitting – particularly as the magazine’s publisher, Robert Harper, will be gracing the open mic.
