THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED

Is reading for six minutes as good for you as five a day or a brisk walk? We think so, especially if it is about you, about where you live. Come and hear six minute ensembles written and performed for Read Manchester by the brilliant children from Manchester schools (Levenshulme High School for Girls, Manchester Enterprise Academy, Parrs Wood High School, St Paul's Catholic High School and Wright Robinson College), led by writers who limbered up in the Writing Squad. Manchester Literature Festival works with the Writing Squad to support emerging young writers from the North West region to develop their craft. This event is part of the Read Manchester campaign.
