Bad Language February, Manchester

Another month, and another Bad Language event is upon us.

This month we have two excellent literary events for you to get involved in.

First up, Bad Language are doing an hour of completely free words at the Royal Exchange as part of their SFX season on Friday 21st February. You can find information on that here.

We also have our regular Bad Language event at The Castle Hotel.

Our headliner for February will be Emma Lannie, who will be reading from her debut collection, ‘Behind a Wardrobe in Atlantis’.

Emma J. Lannie explores extraordinary moments within ordinary lives, that are evocative of fairy tale and myth. A magical collection of short fiction.

“Lannie explores the subtle dislocations that occur within relationships in a clear-eyed prose that is eloquent, graceful, and quiet. These tales occupy a landscape of emotional and physical impacts, of fallible characters longing for a connection but who find themselves at odds with the world, a world often sorrowful and darkly beautiful. Illuminating the fragility of human relationships, these are the sorts of stories we tell ourselves to survive. A truly remarkable first collection, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.” Ray Robinson.

On the open mic will be one of Bad Language’s very own hosts, as well as:

Tony Baxter
Tom Smith
Jackson Gadd
Sue Barnard
Alan Creedon
Stephanie Sabathy
Nadine West
Tom Kwei
Jake Duff

That’s Wednesday February 26th at 19:30. Free entry.
