Do you love words?

This year’s +Culture Shots programme is calling on aspiring writers to pen a poem, a short story or even write a song as part of the CHANGES creative writing competition.

It is a very exciting time for Manchester as the city rejuvenates and is reborn as a centre for culture and the arts. Everywhere you go things  are happening; Central Library has just re-opened after a 4 year redevelopment, Home (the new Cornerhouse) is due to open next Spring and the Whitworth Art Gallery will re-open on October 25th 2014 as a 21st century gallery in the park.

The modern world never stays still for very long and it is this dynamism of change, renewal and rebirth that we would like you to harness in your writing. What does change feel like? Does it inspire and energise everything around it? Or does it create nostalgia for the past and what once was?

What does change mean to you?
