Join Manchester Writing School to celebrate the launch of Hinterland’s special issue on place writing, published in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University’s Centre for Place Writing. This special issue features creative non-fiction writing by a host of writers who transport us to places as varied as the lofty heights of the Andes, the treacherous waters of the Bristol Channel, the coastlines of Dar es Salaam and Withenrsea, and the manufactured fantasia of Disneyland.

The launch event is hosted by the Centre for Place Writing and will feature readings by special issue contributors Jean Sprackland, Adam Farrer, and Alison Baxter, as well as special issue guest editor Andrew Michael Hurley and the editors of Hinterland, Andrew Kenrick and Yin F Lim. The event will be introduced by David Cooper.
