You may know Paper Planes from writing work shops and readings or from published work. STEVE WALING is a Commonword trustee and co-founded Manchester Poetry Festival (now Manchester Literature Festival) with Henry Normal. His poetry collection Calling Myself on the Phone is published by Doorstop, and his book Travelator is out now. ANTHONY SIDES has almost always written fiction and found journalism easy. His fiction appears in the anthology Comma, edited by Ra Page, and in the 2nd edition of Multi-Storey. He and Dave Puller contributed additional material to Terry Milligan's "Bringing in the Sheep" which got brilliant reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2007 and 2008. VIEWS ON PAPER PLANES: Annie Clarkson: "inspiring... A lot of laughs, respect for others' writing, and encouragement. ... a wonderful afternoon." William West: "amazing classes. .. . the teaching is pure gold!" Lynn Myint-Maung: "thank you for the work shop ... I found you graceful and organized as facilitators, but also cheerful, kindly and playful and allowing so that the atmosphere was both safe and encouraging." Adam Grant: "You guys are bloody superb, I love what you're doing with Paper Planes." Pat Selden : "I never expected it to be this good." Elaine Speakman: "It's my favourite way to spend a Saturday, I think it's lovely."
