Experimental poetry in Manchester

WFN July 2nd

WFN is an opportunity for innovative/experimental poets to present their work for feedback in a mutually supportive atmosphere. Ideally, please bring along copies of the work you intend to read for the other group members. Anyone who wants to come along but doesn’t want to read is also very welcome.

Leeds’ only poetry workshop with the focus on work that doesn’t fit in the mainstream. Avant-garde techniques, humour and innovative use of language are all things that we like very much. We like work which has something to say about contemporary life yet shows an awareness of tradition.

Format of workshops will be poets reading from their work and receiving constructive feedback. It would be best if people could bring along copies of their work for the other group members to follow. It won’t be a problem if that isn’t possible though.

Anyone who wants to come along just to listen is very welcome.
