20 August 2012
The folks at Manchester Literature Festival have just (well, in the last fortnight or so) revealed the line-up for this year's celebration of all things bookish, and most exciting it is too. Stretching from 8 to 23 October (though there is a special trailblazer event on 30 August, a National Poetry Day shindig on 4 October and an extra interview on 7 October), it's a proper jampacked do this time round. The Turing Text being launched by Comma Press and the biggest-ever Blog Awards, now casting its net beyond Manchester and remonikering itself the Blog North Awards (nominate your favourite bogs from the north by 7 September!). As per last year, I'm doing the digital marketing for the festival, so you're more than likely to catch me over on the MLF blog if I'm not posting here.
