Posted 17 Apr 2018 by Ian Anstice in Latest Libraries News

Wordpool 2018Amazingly this is Wordpool’s twelfth year! Twelve years and eighteen festivals, hundreds of amazing writers, artists, poets, musicians and performers sharing the power of words with our audiences of all ages. 2018 promises to be yet another fantastic year.

Mark BillinghamWe’ll be reflecting the mood of the nation and sharing the romance of Royal Wedding week with an evening of bestselling romantic fiction from authors Carole Matthews and Fiona Walker. Our guest authors’ journeys to fiction often surprise us and actor, TV writer and comedian Mark Billingham is no exception. If he doesn’t mention playing Gary the guard in TV’s cult children’s series Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, we will!

Darren McGarvey aka Scottish rapper, Loki will be challenging our young audiences at Blackpool 6th Form College with his wise and witty manifesto for change, Poverty Safari.

Death in the seaWe’re always excited to be able to showcase new talent and 2018 publishing sensations C J Tudor and Nick Clark Windo are creating quite a buzz at Wordpool HQ.

Independent Publishing is transforming the literary world and we’re delighted to be working with CommaPress and BlueMoose Books to bring you events and writing projects focussed on the short story form.

This is the last year of our two year development programme funded through Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, we thank them for their support.

It’s going to be a good one…come along and join us
