Northern has joined forces with the Manchester Literature Festival and Helen Mort to host a unique poetry journey on Sunday 13 May.

We're offering you the opportunity to travel from Manchester Victoria to Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire whilst being immersed in all things literature.

The winners of the competition will be treated to an exclusive live reading by well-known Sheffield poet Helen Mort, who will recite 'There & Back', a bespoke poem written for the experience.  The day will also include a guided literature walk through Hebden Bridge, before finishing with a bite to eat and drink (and maybe a book or two!) in a local café. 

From independent publishers and bookshops, to famous writers and literature landmarks, the guided walk will highlight the strong connections the Hebden Bridge area has with the literature world.

After the experience, winners will be free to return to Manchester from Hebden Bridge at their own leisure.
