ABOUT

Students at the Centre For New Writing present The Manchester Anthology IX –the latest edition of Manchester University's acclaimed collection of student writing – written, edited and produced entirely by MA students.

Alongside their hectic schedules of writing, re-writing and re-re-writing (to mention nothing of their perseverance through Zoom fatigue, flight cancellations and rising death tolls) the class of 2021 have put together an heroic body of work, featuring stories of love, loss, literature, ugly babies and mysterious companions who appear only in dreams. As ever, the collection offers a wide range of voices that encompass everything from poetry to novel excerpts, short stories to creative non-fiction.

The launch will happen at The International Anthony Burgess Foundation on 19th October. During this historic event you will have the opportunity to hear excerpts from the book read by the writers themselves.

The Manchester Anthology IX will be available as an eBook and physical copies will be on sale in Blackwell's Manchester while stocks last.

 

MEET THE TEAM

The anthology is produced by a team of students who took on extra roles and responsibilities.
