A CITY

CONNECTS

MANCHESTER LITERATURE ONLINE

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” 

 F. Scott Fitzgerald

We can find community in stories, in conversation and in learning that we are not as isolated as we thought. Literature can be the heart of this connectedness- it’s what brings us together.

In a world that is changing at break-neck speed, where we carry out social distancing for the good of public health, how do we stay connected?

Manchester City of Literature is inspired by the possibilities that still exist for our city to bring people together.

 

You'll find everything that's going on here, whether you're a reader, a writer, you want to support independent publishers or are looking for something to entertain you or young children.
