Altrincham Word Fest 2020

Word fest online

We are back in October on Zoom with inspiring workshops and events featuring North West writers and publishers. We are delighted to announce that Word Fest 2020 is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The programme is here

Altrincham Word Fest Online 2020 is accompanied throughout October by the short film,  ‘Sticks and Stones’ created by filmmaker Kevin Linnane.

‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me’. The film is a poetic elemental phonemic incantation, a magic spell to create or invoke protection. The short film consists of spoken word paired with reflected scrying images.

‘Historical fiction with Carolyn O’Brien, author of ‘Song’ of Peterloo’ Carolyn O’Brien’s talk event on 2nd October 7:00-8:00
