Information for Potential Collaborators

The Manchester Children's Book Festival features a number of public events and an extended programme of activities for schools. We are regularly approached by authors, artists, performers and organisations who would like to be involved.  We would love to work with everyone but we have a limited number of opportunities and a finite budget available.

We are not currently inviting submissions but, if you are an author, artist or other performer interested in delivering an event as part of future Festival programmes, please complete our Expression of Interest form. We will place your details on file and be in touch if any suitable opportunities arise when curating future programmes.

Expression of Interest form

If you are a publisher or author wishing to promote a book or competition, tag @MCBFestival on Twitter.  We do not act as an agent but, if we think that your offer might be of interest to teachers in our network, we will share. 

If you are a publisher wishing to offer a school visit or tour in the Manchester area,  please email mcbf@mmu.ac.uk with details.  If we think this could be of interest to schools in our network, we will contact you.
