Higher Education Partner
The University of Manchester is our official Higher Education Partner. We work closely with the Centre for New Writing programming joint events with leading international authors alongside more emerging talent, and provide placement and volunteering opportunities for students.
“The University of Manchester is committed to the cultural life of a great city and we are delighted now to formalise our longstanding relationship with one of this city's major arts initiatives, Manchester Literature Festival. The School of Arts, Languages and Cultures is an international leader in its field and looks forward to working with the Festival as it develops its international ambitions further and draws on our research strengths.” Professor Alessandro Scheisaro, Head of School of Arts, Languages and Cultures at The University of Manchester
