Here at Manchester Literature Festival we are committed to developing and delivering work that offers children and young people access to the very best in contemporary writing from across the world. We do this through a wide range of different projects and events supporting our annual festival, and a year round programme of opportunities supporting children and young people to be inspired by stories and literature.

The events for young readers in this year's festival programme can be found here
