This event is in the past.

What a cracking month it is going to be – again! With almost 400 poetry events listed on our famous gig guide in March, lots of competitions to enter, new stuff you can do on the website, and chance to sign up for the next Write Out Loud BIG weekend.

The next BIG weekend

What they said last time:

This whole event was brilliant!

Easy-going and friendly.

Highly productive and so much fun.


A model of how to do workshops.

When’s the next?

Sign up quickly for another cracking weekend of poetry, socialising, workshops and fun! If you missed out on Write Out Loud’s last BIG Weekend, you will be delighted to hear there’s another planned, from Friday, 1st until Sunday, 3rd April.

In the hills above Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, ‘Mankinholes’ is a beautifully refurbished 16th Century manor house, now a youth hostel.  The price is an incredible £110 per person for all your accommodation, meals, and the weekend’s events, workshops and open-mics. Saturday night will be an open-mic and meal in the village pub.  Only 30 places available, you will have to hurry to reserve your place. Accommodation is in single-sex shared rooms.

The full programme will be posted on the website over the next week or so. You can find more details at:
