Two connected, immersive literature-making workshops explore writing site-responsive texts. We’ll be using Manchester’s waterways as a starting point for a new piece of writing with historical, social and personal resonances. In this workshop we will create a draft text that will be used for our second workshop on Saturday 18th October; attending both workshops is advised. Both workshops are designed for people with some prior experience of writing. Maya Chowdhry is a writer and interactive artist making work for radio, print and installation. Michelle Green is a multi-disciplinary artist specialising in poetry, spoken word, short fiction and participatory arts.

Please note that the associated Tales from The Towpath interactive story trail is on daily throughout the festival.
