Manchester Literature Festival

This year, I volunteered at the Manchester Literature Festival. From talking to Mark Billingham about his days as Gary in Maid Marian, sticking glitter on paper maracas with kids at Yasmeen Ismail's children's reading event, to listening to Paula Hawkins, Renee Knight and Kate Hamer reading from their latest books, it was a great experience. I'd recommend everyone to volunteer, at least once, for something they're passionate about. Seeing how interested kids can be in a simple story and messy arts and crafts, to the pleasure of seeing people meet their favourite author, I'll definately do it all again next year.
