Your Stories Poetry Workshops

Help us celebrate the reopening of Manchester’s iconic Central Library by sharing your personal stories with local writer and poet Adam Lowe, who will lead these free workshops.

Tell us why you love your library, about your favourite book, or stories about your family and where you live. During the sessions, Adam will lead themed discussions and offer advice and tips on how to turn your ideas into poems or short stories.Work from these events will then form part of an exhibition at Central Library to celebrate its reopening.

Places are free but limited: book your place direct with the library.

  1. Manchester free public libraries provided the reading magic carpet that carried me from a Miles Platting childhood to North Manchester Grammar School and Cambridge University where I read history. After a 40 year corporate career I am now the author of the Kimberley Trilogy of Australian Historical adventure novels and have recently driven 22,000 kilometres around Australia selling my books in pubs and on market stalls. I am visiting UK and hope to get to the library opening on 22/3.
