It is suddenly a very strange feeling to be in the company of other bloggers who are blogging the same events. It's not so much competitive as contrapuntal. Today after a quick tour of Manchester's more attractive architectural features - Rylands Library, Barton Arcade, Royal Exchange Theatre (I guess Geof will blog that) - we went up to Bury. Tom Konyves went to the Met Arts Centre to prepare for tonight's poetry-film event; while Geof & Nancy came with me to the Gallery. He seemed pleased with the transfer of his concrete poem to a large scale vinyl on glass in the Museum. In the afternoon, Channel M filmed a piece about the festival - with us interviewed and him reading (pictured).
