Cleckheaton Literature Festival anthology launch, 1pm 15 December, Cleckheaton Library

This Saturday sees the third and final launch of the Cleckheaton Literature Festival anthology at Cleckheaton Library. The FREE event starts at 1pm and there will be readings from poets Ralph Dartford and Noel Whittall, and short story writer Mandy Huggins. All anthologies bought at the launch will be at a reduced price of £5 on the day and can be signed by the writers at the event. There will be a book raffle and the opportunity to purchase books by our visiting poets and writers.

The event takes place from 1pm at Cleckheaton Library, Whitcliffe Road, Cleckheaton, BD19 3DX

Our first reading will be from poet Ralph Dartford who hails from Basildon, Essex, and is the founder member of highly acclaimed spoken word collective, ‘A Firm of Poets’. Ralph has been published in The Guardian, Stirring Magazine (US), Pulp Faction, Exterminating Angel Press (US) and London Territories. His first collection, Cigarettes, Beer and Love, was published by Ossett Observer Presents in July 2013. 

Follow-up posts tomorrow and Saturday will feature details of our two other readers Noel Whittall and Mandy Huggins.

Hope to see you at the event.
