A communication from Comma Press listing readings and timings at the Manchester Independent Book Markets return this Friday and Saturday, St Ann's Square, Manchester, UK. (10am-5pm)
The Book Market brings the best independently produced novels, poetry, short fiction, art books, si-fi, horror and non-fiction right to your doorstep, at a time when high street bookshops are growing increasingly conservative...
Live readings; Friday and Saturday, from 12pm – 5pm:
Situated in the bustling St Ann’s Square, just off Deansgate, the market’s a great place to browse, grab a coffee, buy a book, and listen to live readings from a selection of talented performance poets and authors.
Aspiring writers can also meet representatives from the North’s finest independent presses – including Comma Press, Carcanet, Dewi Lewis, Tindal Street, Route, Crocus, Flax, Interzone, and many others. So if you’re an aspiring writer, why not make contact with publishers and put your name about?
