Bewilderbliss is a magazine and a website aimed at new writers in Manchester. They launched their first print anthology in March, during the same No Point night that I launched A Kind of Intimacy.
I think it’s the first interview or feature that I’ve ever seen that acknowledges that I actually come from Preston and not Manchester. I like Manchester and since I studied there I have plenty of affection for and connection to the place.
But I like being from Preston, despite this truthful and very funny blog that gives you an insight into what it might be like to live here. If I lived in Manchester, where there are things to do in the evening, I might never get any writing done.
