The Centre for New Writing organises the 'Literature Live' reading series, bringing the best known contemporary writers from all over the world to Manchester to discuss and read from their work.
In the past, we've hosted an impressive line-up of literary luminaries including Martin Amis, Colm Tóibín, Will Self, Sarah Waters, John Banville, Hilary Mantel, Neil Gaiman, Paul Muldoon, Rose Tremain and Hanif Kureishi.
Everyone is welcome to attend these events.
