Hosted by the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University

Come join three exciting poets, each launching their debut collection this year. Manchester Writing School alumnus, Ian Humphreys will be reading from Zebra (Nine Arches Press), which Jean Sprackland describe as “a powerful, moving, original body of work”. He will be reading alongside his fellow Writing School graduate, Alison Winch, of whose collection Darling, It’s Me (Penned in the Margins), Clare Pollard writes is “one of the cleverest, filthiest, most incendiary debuts I’ve ever read." Jennifer Lee Tsai joins them to celebrate her new pamphlet Kismet (ignitionpress) and its poetry which Sandeep Parmar says “gives us a crystalline language for loss, silence and memory”.
