Cleckheaton Literature Festival anthology launch 10 November 2018

The first book launch for the Cleckheaton Literature Festival anthology is coming up this Saturday, and I thought now would be a good time to tell you about the readers we have featured at this event. This Saturday sees Alison Lock, John Irving-Clarke and Ali Harper (Alison Taft) reading. Each writer has work in the anthology. So, first up today Alison Lock:

Alison Lock is a poet and author living in West Yorkshire. Her poetry and short stories have appeared in anthologies and journals in the UK and internationally. She finds inspiration in the moorlands and the natural environment of the South Pennines, often reflected in her writing, but she is also influenced by her childhood home of the West Country. Her second short story collection A Witness of Waxwings (2017) Cultured Llama Press, was long-listed in the Saboteur Awards and her stories have won prizes in: The London Magazine Competition 2015, The Sentinel Quarterly Review, and The 14th Conference for the Short Story in English at Shanghai. Revealing the Odour of Earth (2017) Calder Valley Poetry is her latest collection of poetry. She also facilitates courses in Creative Writing and Life Writing for Transformation.

As well as being able to purchase the anthology, guests will also be able to purchase copies of Alison's work at the event.

We look forward to welcoming you at 1pm this Saturday at Cleckheaton Libary.

(Tomorrow, details on John Irving-Clarke)
