Three exciting contemporary writers read and discuss their work.
Lisa McInerney won the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Baileys Prize for her debut The Glorious Heresies. She will read and discuss her new novel, The Blood Miracles, a fierce and riotious story about youth, drugs and misguided ambitions.
Sally Rooney's work has been published in Granta, The White Review and Stinging Fly. Her debut novel, Conversations with Friends, is a brilliant, moving and incredibly funny look at relationships, identity, sex and youth.
Joanna Walsh is the author of Vertigo, Hotel, Grow a Pair and Fractals, and the founder of @read_women. She will be Burgess Writer Fellow at the Centre for New Writing in Spring 2018. She will read from her boldly experimental new collection of stories, Worlds From the Word's End.
The event will be hosted by Kaye Mitchell, co-director of the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester, and is presented in partnership with Manchester Literature Festival.
