Culminating in a packed out our Marsden Mechanics Hall for ‘Yorkshire Vet’ Julian Norton, we’ve enjoyed an inspiring season of writing this winter.

November brought flash fiction and crime from Mandy Huggins and Dave Rigby.  And we felt personally invested in Mandy’s subsequent success at the Costa Short Story Prizes in January 2019.

We were delighted to welcome Gaia Holmes and the other POET in December, in association with Comma Press and the Poetry Village.

Sarah Hussain, John Ling, and Den Dixon showcased the variety of talent there is out there, with each of them bringing something unique to Marsden Library.

And it was fantastic to welcome a full house to the Mechanics through our partnership with Huddersfield Literature Festival with the crowd-pleasing ‘Yorkshire Vet’ Julian Norton.

Some photos for you to enjoy below, and we hope to see you again in 2019 – 2020.
