Join us in Square Chapel's brand new cafe-bar for our September WordPlay. Poetry, performance and live music; WordPlay features established artists alongside emerging talent, bringing the best on the block to Halifax...and there are even a few open mic slots up for grabs too.
This month we are delighted to welcome the following guests:
Dr Wolfgang Gortschacher, University of Salzburg // the Editor-In-Chief of Poetry Salzburg Review. He will give a talk about Poetry Salzburg, and read some Austrian poems in translation.
John Challis // a former Northern Writers' Award winner, is widely-published, and has a collection forthcoming with Poetry Salzburg.
Victoria Gatehouse // a Halifax poet who has had many competition successes and is widely-published. She recently read with Carol Ann Duffy at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, and has poems forthcoming in Poetry Salzburg.
There is no set ticket price, simply turn up and Pay As You Feel after the event — all takings will be split between the featured artists.
