LIBERTINE MAGAZINE LAUNCH
Libertine Magazine will be launched tomorrow at Manchester's Central Library (6pm/free entry and wine). It is "dedicated solely to poetry, lyrics and the liberation of the language that they use". The first issue includes an interview with Carol Ann Duffy in which she discusses Mozart, Madonna and Lennon/McCartney. Guillemots frontman Fyfe Dangerfield talks about Kerouac, Lewis Carroll and his own poetry. All that as well as "great features exploring the inspiration that great names of music and literature have on each other, plus a wide variety of excellent and original brand new poetry and song lyrics submitted from around the world".
Transmission, another Manc literary magazine, are also organising a shindig tomorrow, but MyPlace is playing up so I can't give you the details. Best contact them if you're interested.
