I shouldn't complain...but at the last count I could go to at least seven events in the next week - not all literary, but all kind-of interesting.
So if you've not got any plans, try....
The launch of a new exhibition and the new edition of The Modernist tomorrow night....
A new art project at the National Football Museum - "Out of Play" - about technology and football... that's Friday.
On Saturday I'm reading poetry (me! poetry!) as part of a pop up reading at St. Helens Central Library 1pm-3pm, with (I hope) some other poets.
All weekend, 2-wheelers are invited to put their ideas into the Manchester Cyclehack.
Monday sees Verbose return to Fallow Cafe, with a very special trip to the suburbs by Tom Jenks, James Davis and Scott Thurston, the founders of the Other Room, reading their own work together.
Tuesday then sees Les Malheureux, Sarah Clare Conlon and David Gaffney at the Didsbury Arts Festival - performing at the Art of Tea - alongside a poetry slam. Of course, Didsbury Arts Festival starts this Saturday so there's stuff on every day for the next week and a half.
Wednesday has a special night of international poetry coming to Gullivers early evening - then later that evening its Bad Language across the road at the Castle. Amazingly its their 50th event with special guest Jo Bell.
Next Friday an unusual talk from Pariah Press at Anthony Burgess Foundation called "The idea of death" - which I'm going to be away for, but with sounds brilliant.
