A special chance to spend some time with one of the Manchester Writing School’s most exciting visiting fellows, André Naffis-Sahely. Join us for what promises to be an unmissable lecture and workshop.

Taking a cue from Jeffers’s poem Inscription for a Gravestone, we will consider how California’s most famous and influential poet voiced his concerns over our unbalanced relationship with our natural surroundings. Inspired by his approach, we will then write our own ‘epitaphs’ to suit our own times.
