Our guide to

Reading and writing

We like words. And so it follows that we like to write about literature festivals, writing courses and blogs, as well as literary prizes of the highest order, from big-hitters such as the Manchester Writing Prize, to newer ones such as the Northern Writing Prize. In between are bookish venues, from Liverpool’s soon-to-open Central Library to Manchester’s medieval Chetham’s. And every month we recommend new things to read, as well as keep an eye on the best writing courses and writing competitions out there. Read all about it.
