Elemental was a huge success at Rochdale Central Library on Saturday 26th October led by four superb writers. Segun Lee-French was in deep Water with refugee writers from the Shamwari project; Anjum Malik delved in the Earth with the women from Deeplish Story Group; Visceral flew high in the Air with young people from Darnhill; and Shamshad Khan was on Fire with women from an ESOL class at Wardleworth Women's Association. There will be a book in due course...
