Manchester Literature Festival is inviting audiences to write a review of any events they have attended as part of this year’s festival. The best reviews will then be posted on the festival’s blog site and a £50 Borders voucher will be awarded to the most entertaining/informative review received by a member of the public.
How to enter the Review Competition
You can write a review of any event that is part of this year’s Manchester Literature Festival programme (16 - 26th October 2008). Reviews should provide a summary of what happened at the event (including name of event, featured writers, date and venue). It should also give a strong flavour of the event’s mood/physical surroundings and how the audience responded. Detail any interesting points made by the writers or members of the audience. Listen/watch out for any quirky details that will add some local colour to your piece.
We want to hear your original perceptions of the Manchester Literature Festival, favourable or otherwise, but please bear in mind that we won’t be able to publish anything that might be deemed libelous!
Reviews should be between 100 and 400 words in length. All reviews should be sent within 3 days of the event taking place and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also attach a jpeg photo of the event to accompany your review if you have one, but don’t worry if you haven’t as the official MLF photographer will be out and about at most of our events.
Please ensure that your email also contains the following information:
* the title and date of the event you have reviewed
* your own name and contact details
