15-19 June 2022 sees the return of Manchester UNESCO City of Literature’s Festival of Libraries.
Following the success of last year’s inaugural celebration, the 2022 festival showcases a vibrant programme of 80 events in libraries across all ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.
Creative Manchester – the University’s creativity-championing research platform - is delighted to be offering seven workshop sessions in partnership with the Centre for New Writing and the Linguistic Diversity Collective.
Writers from the Centre for New Writing will be facilitating a ‘Writing for Wellbeing’ workshop which explores how creative writing can have positive effects on mental health and wellbeing. ‘Have you seen my duckling? – Storytime in mother languages’ is a session run by the Linguistic Diversity Collective for parents and caregivers from minority language backgrounds and their young children, encouraging shared book reading and building a narrative around a wordless picture book.
All workshops are free to attend but booking is required due to limited spaces.
