The Writing Squad

6 Minute Reads

Tuesday 17th Oct 2017, 12:30pm
Central Library

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. 

It also offers a sounding board and support network for a growing community of young writers and producers in the North. For more details on the programme visit writingsquad.com and discover exciting new work in their online journal Push.
