Cleckheaton Literature Festival Anthology Launch

Cleckheaton Literature Festival Anthology Launch

Reflections is a rich and diverse collection of prose and poetry, celebrating the legacy of Cleckheaton Literature Festival.

The anthology features work from many of the writers who appeared at the festival in 2015 and 2016, as well as stories and poems by members of Cleckheaton Writers Group, who organised and ran the festival.

The collection will launch at three separate events in November and December 2018, the first of which will be held at Cleckheaton Library, Whitcliffe Road at 1pm on Saturday 10th November.

There will be readings by writers including Alison Lock, Ali Harper (A J Taft) and John Irving-Clarke.

This will be followed by an evening event at Heckmondwike Library, Walkley Lane at 5.30pm on Tuesday 27th November

There will be readings by writers including Julie Pryke and Martin Webster.

The third event will be at Cleckheaton Library on Saturday 15th December at 1pm

There will be readings by writers including Noel Whittall and Ralph Dartford.

There will be the opportunity to purchase copies of the anthology as well as other books by the authors. All the events are free to attend, and there will be complimentary refreshments available.

‘This collection of writing is a testament to the work of the festival team that worked so hard to bring the joy of literature in all its forms to West Yorkshire. I hope they are justifiably proud of all they achieved in such short space of time.’ Mark Wright
