The Future of the Past

How do leading poets and novelists draw on the past to make new poems and fictions; why are they drawn to particular period and how do new ideas about memory and commemoration inform  their work?

This panel discussion, organised by The University of Mancheste’s Centre for New Writing, will be chaired by John McAuliffe, poet, lecturer and editor of The Manchester Review

Panel: Ian McGuire, Frances Leviston, Paul Batchelor and Beth Underdown
