Manchester Literature Festival
With an amazing line-up of internationally renowned authors, exclusive performances of specially commissioned work, bespoke walking tours and topical discussions, Manchester Literature Festival makes Manchester the destination of choice for literature lovers this September and October.
From the cotton trade to the creative industries, and from football to music, Manchester has led the way; now home to MediaCity UK, two top class university writing schools, and some of the UK's finest authors, including Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, the city is fast becoming a hothouse for new writing - much of which will be on display at this year's Festival.
Take part by attending venues across the city for a distinctly Mancunian celebration of literature and the imagination.
