In the second of our Quay Voices events, novelist Wyl Menmuir reads, supported by talented students of creative writing from the University of Exeter.
In addition to the reading from Wyl, this event is an opportunity for student writers to read their work in front of a live audience and for you to discover writers who could soon be making it on to your to-be-read pile!
