Blackwell's are proud host Salt Publishing on 12th April 2012 for a reading to celebrate National Poetry Month.

The featured poets will be Michael Symmons Roberts, a Whitbread Poetry Award winner and professor of poetry at MMU, the Forward Prize-scooping Ian Duhig and Salt Publishing's own Chris Emery.

As well as readings and books by our guests, the event will also feature the Manchester launch of Chris Emery's The Departure. This will be Chris' third collection, and has narrative poems that boast everything from cowboys to checkout girls, and from composers to killers.

The National Poetry Month Reading will take place at Blackwell's Manchester on April 12th at 7pm. It is free, no booking is required, and there will be drinks. For a poster of the event, email ian.carrington (at) Otherwise, see the event on Facebook here.
