Glocal imaginaries posterThis unique exhibition covers fifty years of writing in Greater Manchester, which has a growing reputation as the independent publishing capital of the North. Based on archival research by a major university project called ‘Moving Manchester’, the Writing Manchester exhibition profiles the city’s most influential writers, publishers and writing organisations as well as providing an overview of the city’s literary trends and specialisms. This event has been supported in part by funding from Arts Council England North-West and the organisers would like to thank ACE for its generous support.
