Manchester University Press and The Mill launch new event series

24 Feb 2023

Manchester University Press is delighted to announce a new collaboration with independent news outlet The Mill, to launch a new event series available exclusively to their subscribers


These will be ticketed events offered to The Mill’s paying members only, with the audience having the opportunity to ask questions, during and after the event, of MUP authors and The Mill editorial team, in an informal and intellectually stimulating space.

The first three events in the series will take place in early 2023, with the first taking place in March 2023 at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester city centre. This first event will see author of 'Manchester Unspun', Manchester-based journalist and author Andy Spinoza, in conversation with The Mill’s Editor Joshi Herrmann. Their conversation will be followed by informal networking and a book signing.

The following events will take place in April and May 2023 respectively, also at the Burgess centre, and will focus on researcher Tom Haines-Doran’s recent book, 'Derailed: How to fix Britain’s broken railways', and poet and broadcaster David Scott’s 'Mancunians'.

MUP’s Sales and Marketing Director Chris Hart said: “We’re delighted to be working with The Mill – a local publication with a growing readership thanks to its original and thought-provoking journalism around issues at the heart of life in Greater Manchester, interests which we at MUP share, as well as a belief in sharing fact-driven and well-researched content, we are also both mission-orientated organisations with a sense of purpose which we hope comes across to readers of both MUP books, and The Mill, and will be reflected by this new event collaboration.”

The Mill's Editor Joshi Herrmann added: “We’re really excited to be putting on this events series with the brilliant Manchester University Press. The events will give our members a chance to hear from some of the city’s most interesting writers on stage and also hear from The Mill’s team about big stories we have worked on recently. Ever since we started, our members have been asking us to organise more in-person meetups so that they can meet each other and have more contact with our team, and we’re grateful to MUP for giving us a chance to do that.”
