The Rylands Brief Podcast
The Centre for New Writing, Creative Manchester and The University of Manchester Library have produced a new podcast series entitled The Rylands Brief. It explores the unopened John Rylands exhibition Carcanet at 50, and features editors, poets, archivists and friends of Carcanet Press.
To celebrate and showcase the exhibition, Jessica Smith (Creative Arts Archivist at the John Rylands) and poet John McAuliffe (founder of the Centre for New Writing) will present a series of 10-minute podcasts which focus on poems and objects which would have been part of the exhibition. They and their guests will offer unique insights about the work featured in the exhibition, and discuss why that particular poem or poet was chosen to be showcased.
