Digital Words: Tameside Libraries readers’ and writers festival

Digital Words is the 2020 Tameside Libraries Readers’ and Writers’ Festival. This year the popular annual event, which takes place throughout October, is taking place online due to restrictions imposed to contain the coronavirus.

As always, the festival presents the public with a chance to meet some of the UK’s most popular authors as well as to take part in a family poetry show and workshops to improve their own writing. Among the participating novelists are Milly Johnson and Rowan Coleman (Bella Ellis) who have both seen their books feature in the Sunday Times best-seller lists. Writing workshops are being led by Sophie Parkes-Nield from Mossley Writers. Manchester University professor Jerome De Groot will head a couple of sessions looking at creative ways to recount your family history.

All the events are free but booking is required via Eventbrite or call the library on 0161 342 2031. For full details of the various sessions visit the Digital Words on the library website.
