The Future of the Book

The book has been at the centre of our culture for millennia, but seems now to be under threat as never before. How does the book co-exist alongside our use of digital media, and in the experience of cutting edge innovative writers, how do social media, literary journals, and performance change the ways books are made and read now?

This panel discussion, organised by The University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing, will be chaired by John McAuliffe, poet, lecturer and editor of The Manchester Review

Panel: Kayo Chingonyi, Honor Gavin and David Hartley
