Following the launch of Alan Halsey’s exhibition at Bank Street last Friday, the next event is this Wednesday.

Come along at 6.15 to hear 20 writers from Sheffield Hallam University’s MA Writing offer small samples of their new works and works in progress, both poems and stories. In many cases these will be works that have never been heard before, given their first airing.

The MA Writing at Sheffield is taught by many prestigious writers, including Jane Rogers, Leslie Glaister, Maurice Riordan, local poet Chris Jones, Harriet Tarlo, John Turner, Mike Harris and John Milne. Visiting professors include Sean O’Brien and Hilary Mantel. Previous students have included Frances Leviston, Anne Chivers and Marina Lewycka.

This is a rare chance to experience some new, quality writing, mainly from local writers.

And it’s free!
