MLF Members share our passion for literature, spoken word and events. Become a Get Closer Member and support Manchester Literature Festival to bounce back from the economic impact of the Covid 19 pandemic. With your help, we can continue delivering exciting events with talented and diverse writers; commission new work; showcase emerging talent; and inspire and upskill children and young people from some of our most disadvantaged communities through creativity.
