You have ten minutes. Ten minutes to go anywhere you like, with anyone, in any time – the past, the future, in this world, out of this world – where would you go? Open a book and read yourself there, pick up a pen and write yourself away. Stay close to home, enter a different dimension, go anywhere in between. Come and hear journeys in reading and writing by members of The Writing Squad and the brilliant students they have been working with from Manchester Communication Academy, St Paul’s Catholic High School and Trinity C of E High School.

This event is supported by Read Manchester, the Granada Foundation and Manchester Guardian Society Charitable Trust.
