Dive in to Weekend of Words

Manchester’s iconic Victoria Baths is open for writing business on Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June 2019, when the heritage pool and washhouse complex will be echoing with original voices thanks to a brand-new festival, Weekend Of Words.

As well as writing workshops – including flash fiction with Some Of Us Glow More Than Others author Tania Hershman at the helm – immerse yourself on Saturday with six brand-new short stories, specially commissioned for the event and taking the Baths as their jump-off point.

Grab a drink and a deckchair, sit back and enjoy a backdrop of magical projections and the writers in your midst: Victoria Baths’ inaugural Writer-in-Residence Sarah-Clare Conlon, Kate Feld, co-host of literary podcast The End Of All Things, Sawn-off Tales flash fiction master David Gaffney, Phil Olsen of Sabotage Reviews, Somerset Maugham Award-winner Joe Stretch, and Lara Williams, author of short story collection Treats and novel Supper Club.

All the ticketing links for Saturday’s events are here; wade in.

Weekend Of Words also marks the official launch of the Victoria Baths Splash Fiction Competition, complete with cash prize. Anyone can take the plunge – find out more here.
