The Novella Awards 2016
The Novella Award was launched in 2014. The venture is a partnership between Liverpool John Moores University’s Screen School; Manchester Metropolitan University’s Department of Contemporary Arts; Sandstone Press; Time To Read (a forum of 21 library authorities in the North West of England); NAWE (the National Association of Writers in Education) and Crewe Town Council, a new partner for 2016.
Join us in the Axis Arts Centre on the Manchester Metropolitan University Cheshire campus, for a vibrant and unique awards experience.
The evening will begin with the launch of Words At Play, an experimental and interdisciplinary exploration and celebration of 'off the page' creative writing. This will feature slam winning poets from the Axis Slam and exciting works from MMUC students.
In addition to the main prize, we'll also be awarding the winners of our 2016 Short Story Prizes which have been a key development of this years programme. We're excited to invite local schools and freelance writers onto campus and celebrate their work alongside our own.
Tickets are free but booking is essential.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Free parking is available on site.
The evening will begin at 19:30 sharp with the launch of Words At Play.
