Manchester Literature Festival
Are libraries the perfect portals for time travel? And what’s it like to imagine someone reading nineteenth century literature in Manchester all the way from Melbourne? The first Virtual Writer in Residence at The Portico for the inaugural #FestivalOfLibraries, Alicia will share the poems she created during her residency and her experience of delving into the library’s collection of books on time, light and astronomy. Alicia Sometimes is an Australian poet, writer and broadcaster based in Melbourne City of Literature. Her poetry collections include Soundtrack and Kissing the Curve. She is currently a Science Gallery Melbourne ‘Leonardo’ (creative advisor) and is a 2021 City of Melbourne Boyd Garnett recipient.
Hosted by Kate Feld and presented in partnership with Manchester City of Literature and Festival of Libraries.
