OctagonLogoPaul's short story, "The Holiday of a Liftime" was accepted to be used in the Best of Bolton event at the Octagon Theatre. A video of the story will appear on this site shortly.

The event took place on the evening of Saturday 7th November 2015.

Director of the Octagon, Elizabeth Newman, selected the pieces and directed professional actors in an Octagon performance of the work of writers chosen.

This is an event that celebrates local talent and is not just for playwrights. The Best of Bolton champions local writers who write prose, poetry, radio and film as well as stage plays.

PaBIWP logo1aul has been assisting in this project for over a year now. He created and administrates the website, videos and edits workshops and performances, and general assists the group in whatever way he can.

In Autumn 2014 Paul approached Chris Chilton at the Bolton Socialist Club to discuss the possibility of hosting a writers's group at writers logothe club. It was decided to start the group in November 2014 and to host it at 10am every 2nd Saturday of the month thereafter. The group has workshops that are led, at different times, by Paul, Chris Chilton, Peter Street and Hannah Middleshaw.
