THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED

Join us for an evening showcasing the five talented writers shortlisted for this year’s Portico Prize for Literature. Established in 1985 by Manchester’s Portico Library to celebrate the literary heritage of the North, this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Prize. At this event, a selection of the poetry and fiction finalists will read extracts from their work followed by a panel discussion with host Jon Atkin. Past shortlisted writers have included Sarah Hall (twice winner of the Prize), AS Byatt and Simon Armitage. Authors for the event will be confirmed in September when the shortlist is released.
