Finally, I can announce that I am inaugural Writer-in-Residence at The John Rylands Library in Manchester. It’s fantastic news.
How? I put together a proposal, & asked. The power of asking, indeed.

Read the article in the University of Manchester magazine, here:

“When I first moved to Manchester I was stunned to discover this incredible library with such a surprising history,” remembers Rosie Garland, singer with Leeds post-punk band The March Violets and writer-in-residence at The John Rylands Library.
“It’s always been one of my favourite places in Manchester and the idea that I’m now working in it and writing about it as the Library’s first writer-in- residence is a dream come true.”

A group of us are organising a poetry event called Poet's Corner which is going to be held at Chetham's Library on May 12th as part of Manchester After Hours.

We are inviting a diverse mix of local poets to perform on stage within the beautiful surroundings of one of the oldest libraries in the UK and intend to inject a sense of energy and excitement in to a typically serene and quiet environment. Our event is aimed at new and existing audiences of poetry / spoken word and encourages people to appreciate the work of contemporary poets whilst making connections to and celebrating Manchester's literary past.
