Praise for first issue of Centre for New Writing's online journal.
The Manchester Review, the Centre for New Writing's online journal showcasing new work by world-leading and emerging writers and artists, has received a wealth of acknowledgement and praise since it went live on 1 October. Its launch made headlines around the UK and in Ireland, including:

Hyland, Bill Manhire, Neil Rollinson, Vona Groarke, Matt Welton, Chris Killen and Josh Bell. The Review also features a regularly updated, agenda-setting reviews section: visit the review blog for new reviews of Antigone at the Royal Exchange, the film Quiet Chaos, Dangerous Driving by Chris Woods, Tell-tale Signs by Bob Dylan and a lot more.
