Young Media Cub interviewing Aaron Blecha

  • Young Media Cub interviewing Aaron Blecha

Working in partnership with Media Cubs we provided media training for 15 children aged 8-11 at Longsight Library over the course of 5 workshops in autumn 2022. Three of the young reporters then went on to create film interviews with children’s author Aaraon Blecha about his Aliens, Zombies & Monsters workshops and Liz O’Neil, Chief Exec at Z-arts, about the new Manchester Children’s Library. You can find out more about the project and view the films here.

“The reporters really took on the challenge of creating both amazing artwork and an amazing video that will hopefully inspire others to get creative and show the impact of the workshops put on thanks to Manchester Literature Festival.” – Kirsty Day, project leader for Media Cubs
