Manchester Anthology Launch
On September 6th, 2018, I presented two poems, "Happiness" and "Guilt", at the Manchester Anthology VI Launch event. The event took place at HOME in Manchester and nearly 50 guests attended, which was a fantastic turnout. Two University of Manchester faculty, Beth Underdown and John McAuliffe, gave generous opening and closing speeches. The anthology and the event were completely organized by the MA Creative Writing students at the University of Manchester, and print copies were available for sale on site. Both of the poems I read are printed in the book and available to read online. An afterparty followed the event, and it was a wonderful chance to see all my writing peers and celebrate our success in finishing our master's degrees. I am so grateful to all the people at UoM for their support over the past year; it has been more than I could have ever imagined!
