I love visiting Creative Writing groups, and this is no different! Looking forward to meeting the University of Manchester Creative Writing Students.
"Enjoy writing? Or simply want to give it a try? Maybe even you enjoy being around writers?
Then join us!
As a society we bring together writers to share their work, learn from others and simply have fun.
We run fun workshops at least once a month, such as feedback sessions, writing together and experimenting with different styles. We also try to vary our socials between a relaxed night a the pub and alcohol friendly and daytime socials too. This year we hope to extend our society and hold spoken word events, run a member-led blog and some inter-society projects, such as with the History society and the Drama society. Please contact us with ideas too as we're always open to trying new things out.
Our facebook group is https://www.facebook.com/groups/454110951444006/
See you soon!

31.10.2016 - First Draft, Manchester

Monday 31st October 2016
Venue:
Chetham's Library,
Long Millgate,
Manchester M3 1SB

7.30pm
Free – no booking required

When the darkness knocks...
First Draft's Halloween event at Chetham's Library

It's Halloween, and there is a darkness calling from a building that has witnessed the shadows of history flood the city. Chetham's Library has soaked itself in secrets and stories and now First Draft coming to let the building speak. Our incredible line-up of performers will be sharing new music, stories, poetry and drama to tell the tales that the building cannot speak itself.
Our performers will explore the creepy, strange and dark in this thick-walled, medieval building. Can a place ever shake it's past? And if that past is as a priests residence, a prison, a gunpowder factory, a stately home and a school — what happens when all those histories wake up at once?
#darknessknocks

First Draft is a bi-monthly Manchester-based cabaret night, showcasing brand new work: drama, fiction, poetry, music, comedy, storytelling, spoken word, and more. We aim to provide a space for writers and performers of all kinds to test out new ideas in front of a supportive audience.

    April 2020 - The Night Brother, Must-Read Manchester
    Manchester Confidential chooses The Night Brother as a must-read Manchester novel!

    Dystopian classics to modern crime - Nine must-read Manchester novels

    “Fantasy, romance, sci-fi, comedy…we’ve got a genre for everyone
    There’s a very good reason Manchester is a UNESCO City of Literature, as we highlighted before its bid to join the prestigious network in 2017. Innovative publishers, diverse bookshops and a lively events scene make it an unrivalled literary melting pot.

    Rosie Garland’s The Night Brother is our historical highlight
    Ever the entertainer, Rosie Garland sung in post-punk band The March Violets and now performs ‘twisted cabaret’ as Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen. But she’s also a literary maverick with an array of essays, short stories and poetry to her name (much of which she also reads at spoken words events citywide) and three acclaimed novels. Her latest, The Night Brother, navigates themes of gender and identity through two siblings in Victorian Manchester. Rich and Gothic, it’s a must for fans of Angela Carter.”

  • April 2020 - The Night Brother - Best Northern Read
    April 2020 - The Night Brother - Best Northern Read

    An unexpected & encouraging piece of news!
    Northern Soul has selected 'The Night Brother' as a Best Northern Read

    Desmond Bullen, Northern Soul writer
    “In days that can seem desolate and uncertain, there’s a lot to be said for windows into a better world and, ultimately, joyfully, that is exactly the view that The Night Brother by Rosie Garland affords. Not that its window seat is cheaply achieved. Far from it.
    Rooted with disbelief-suspending specificity in Manchester at the end of the 19th century, Garland’s novel blossoms compellingly from the exquisite simplicity of its central conceit, one which owes the tiniest debt to the 1971 horror film Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde. Edie and her brother Gnome are joined in a very particular symbiosis, so that their singular sibling rivalry threatens to be the undoing of both. Themes that could be leaden in other hands emerge from the premise with a beautiful lightness of touch, developing into a persuasive fable of inclusivity and self-acceptance. This is a book that sings a rainbow at its end.”

    'What Girls Do In The Dark' - new poetry collection with Nine Arches Press
    New collection forthcoming in October 2020 from Nine Arches Press

    I’m thrilled to be on the 2020 list of Nine Arches Press!
    I’m in the company of a fantastic group of poets. I couldn’t be happier.

    https://www.ninearchespress.com/about-us/news.html

    “Midlands-based independent poetry publisher Nine Arches Press, which achieved Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation status in 2018, will publish eleven new books of poetry in 2020, from a mix of established and emerging poets from across the UK and across the world…

    Acclaimed novelist Rosie Garland will also join the 2020 list in October with her third full collection of poems What Girls Do in the Dark, a book alive with galactic, glimmering energy. Rosie’s award-winning short and long fiction, poems and essays have been widely anthologised and in 2019 she was selected by Val McDermid as one of the 10 most compelling LGBTQI+ writers working in the UK.”
