Verbose with Joe Stretch at Fallow Cafe, Manchester, 23 April 2018, free entry

The monthly live literature night – shortlisted in this year’s Saboteur Awards (which you can vote in until 9 May) – is back after its star-spangled March outing featuring legendary Haçienda DJ Dave Halsam. This time round, the theme for the three headline acts and open mic performers to navigate is coming of age, and who doesn’t have a story about that, say hosts Joanna Howard and Zena Barrie.

Finding out will be headliners Joe Stretch, James Friel and Quina Chapman. Joe Stretch is the author of three novels: Friction, Wildlife and The Adult, which was published by Vintage, nominated for the Portico Prize and picked up the Somerset Maugham Award. As if he weren’t busy enough, penning The Posthumous Affair and four other novels, James Friel is also programme leader of MA Writing at Liverpool John Moore’s University. Quina Chapman is Artistic Director of Poison Apple Theatre and also a storytelling artist who uses spoken word and original live music to tell tales.
