The Octagon is passionate about developing new writing. Every year we run a competition called Best of Bolton, that celebrates outstanding original work by writers of all different ages, backgrounds and and experiences.

Each year we ask for submissions of poetry, prose, short plays and a selection of the best are performed on stage by professional actors script in hand in a celebration of Bolton's contemporary community and power of the spoken word.
