READING THE OTHER
Proof Bar, Manchester

Reading The Other: a literary reading with a twist.
We have brought together eight very different writers of poetry and prose, paired them up at random and asked them to swap their setlists for the evening. What happens when you cross a Confessional poet with an Imagist? A surrealist with a kitchen-sink dramatist? An exuberant performance poet with an introverted memoirist? How much do writers squirm when forced to sit in the audience and listen to their own words read out in someone else’s voice? Will it descend into fisticuffs at the first sign of a misplaced trochee?
