The Return of Worktown Words, previously known as Networds.

We are happy to announce the return of Worktown Words, the bi-monthly online creative writing anthology curated from submissions by writers in and around Bolton and are so pleased that Romina Ramos, co-organiser of Natter, has agreed to pick up the production of our on-line emagazine Worktown Words. 

Please click on the image to access the anthology.

We have been contacted by so many local writers who were missing it. We can’t wait to see the first edition and are sure that magazine founder, the late Paul Blackburn would have been delighted with this relaunch

Dave Morgan, founder and director.

Romina said she aims to “keep things running as they were to the best of my knowledge, obviously I didn’t get to sit and chat with Paul and have a handover so this issue was a learning curve, but we’re getting there and I’m really happy with this issue”.

Reverting back to its original name, the first new Worktown Words in the theme of Tribute was guest edited by Ajaz Qureshi, an accomplished poet who has just released his own collection of words, Full Nelson.

In this little worktown, your words are worth the work.
