Inspired by our Festival in My House series, we’re inviting Manchester artists to create their own micro-international festivals at home, then stream them for us during the lockdown, live and for free. This week, we’re bringing you a miniature literature festival created especially for the times in which we’re living…

Paying Attention! brings together six of the best queer writers in Manchester, working across all forms from poetry to performance and from fiction to theatre. Teaming up in pairs across the course of the evening, novelists Okechukwu Nzelu and Rosie Garland will be reading from their work, discussing their practice, reflecting, reminiscing and attempting to answer a vital question: ‘Now that you have our attention, how would you like to be read?’ Join us on Wednesday to hear from some of the city’s most exciting writers at this one-off lockdown lit-fest with a difference.
