We do this by uniting the collective strength and voice of writers and all those involved in literary activities across Manchester and create projects that over time will reach all parts of the city.
All our work is guided by our core values, which are that we will be:
Creating distinctive cultural experiences inspired by Manchester’s unique, radical character and rich cultural heritage whilst looking to the future.
Celebrating the rich diversity of voices in the city, building on the strengths of Manchester’s people and widening participation in literary activity.
Developing skills, nurturing creative talent and transforming lives.
Linking and supporting literary activity and enabling collective advocacy for Manchester’s literary community and international collaborations.
A beacon for high quality, culturally democratic, truly diverse literary activity.
