Issue 57 of Now Then Manchester is here, and is full of bees! There are bee sculptures all over the city right now, and I love seeing them both in real life and on the site.
For this month's Word Life I set the theme of "Heroes", and was sent some lovely writing. We have poetry by Ann Christine Tabaka, Selin Candan, Alice Spencer, Robert Pelgrift and Tyler Robert Sheldon.
There are also listings for various events happening over summer in Manchester, from writing workshops to spoken word nights to film-inspired performances.
I hope you enjoy August's Word Life.
