Bad Language at The Castle Hotel – August

Our August event at The Castle is nearly upon us, and we’ve got a fantastic lineup, featuring some brilliant poets, literature promoters, first timers, and one international star! That’s not even mentioning our headline act Richard Hirst, joint winner of 2011’s Manchester Fiction Prize for his story ‘School Report’. He also runs The Bookish Podcast, in which he demands professional writers have conversations with him and which is also available via iTunes.
