Bad Language is one of Manchester’s leading literary nights, with its aim to promote and develop new writing. Its next get-together will be a return to the Royal Exchange this Friday, for another hour-long event showcasing four writers from the region: Lenni Sanders, a poet whose work was commended by the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award; Benjamin Judge, author of the book 50 Stories About Sting; Sarah-Clare Conlon, an award-winning writer of ‘micro’ fiction; and Joy France, a poet and comedian renowned for her appearances at local ‘slam’ events. Bad Language returns to its usual home of the Castle Hotel on Oldham Street for its monthly slot on Wednesday 30 July before heading to the Kendal Calling festival over the first weekend of August .
