Verbose at Fallow Cafe, Manchester, 23 January 2017, free entry - Visit now

Known for “taking words to the ’burbs”, live literature night Verbose is back after a Christmas break, with a special celebration of very short stories from flash fiction headliners David Swann, Ashley Chantler and Peter Blair, contributors to and editors of the highly regarded publication Flash: The International Short-short Story Magazine, which comes out of the University of Chester.

Described, variously, as “one of the best nights going” and “Fallowfield’s number one live literature night”, Verbose this time round will be marking its second birthday under the helm of host Sarah-Clare Conlon, herself a flash fictioneer and a founding member of the FlashTag collective and Manchester’s first-ever short-short story slam.

The monthly outing also includes a popular three-section open mic for prose and poetry performers to share their work in three-minute slots (bagsy one by emailing verbosemcr@gmail.com). Past open micers have included lecturers from the Centre for New Writing, hosts of other spoken word nights, award-winning playwrights and published authors alongside up-and-coming writers and stage newcomers – all are welcome at the friendly Fallow.
