Manchester Metropolitan University. This follows the appointment of Zahid Hussain as a Visiting Teaching Fellow at Manchester Metropolitan. For quite some time, MMW has delivered events and workshops at different venues in the city. We started life at Shakespeare House (which no longer exists). For a few years we held meetings at Chorlton Library in South Manchester. About a year ago, we moved to the Edge Theatre and Arts Centre, also in Chorlton. Therefore, this new connection with possibly the most influential school of writing in the UK heralds a new phase in our development.
