I am a writer and teacher, out and about in the world but with Nottingham never far from my heart.
The cream of Manchester's poetic talent

The light of Manchester's poetry scene is burning brightly in 2014 and, on November 22nd, We4Poets will show you just how brightly. Bringing together work from poets such as Kat Kehoe and Tricia Ashworth, as well as whole host of other writers and performers, the We4Poets Live event promises to be a wonderful evening.

The event is to be held at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation on Cambridge Street, itself named after one of Manchester literary greats – the author of dystopian masterpiece A Clockwork Orange – and a fitting setting to showcase some of the city's contemporary and future talent.

We4Poets describe themselves as a "loose affiliation of Manchester writers, storytellers, poets and musicians." The group are headed by novelists Stanley O Ayodeji and David A Llewellyn, and have a strong track record of putting on excellent shows at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation.

Other writers and performers appearing on the evening include jazz musician Gail Meacham, singer-song writer Tez Skachill and poets Justine Chamberlain and Michael Kyriacou among others. The stage is set for a special evening, and with tickets only£3 for an advance booking and £4 on the door, there is no excuse not to come down and sample what is on offer.
