Citizen 32 Poetry Showcase

23 May @ 18:00 - 20:00

Free

Sizzling poetry performances inspired by Manchester arts magazine Citizen 32.

Censorship, Race, Sexuality, Home/Homelessness, Class, War and Peace. Back in the early 2000s radical poetry and arts magazine Citizen 32 platformed marginalised writers so they could discuss topics & issues that continue to sear through our public and private lives today. Earlier this year founding editor John G Hall continued his efforts to raise voices ignored by the mainstream through a series of creative writing workshops based on the magazine.

This event is a showcase of some of the work produced in the workshops and a reflection on the period documented. John G Hall will open the event with a short history of Citizen 32.

So come along to Manchester Poetry Library for an evening of exhilarating writing. Plus learn more about our 2-year heritage project Hard Pressed exploring the work of Manchester’s small presses, 1975-2010.

Doors open 5.45pm for a prompt start
