Portico Prize Family

The Portico Library has a long standing association with northern writers, editors and publishers, many of whom have been members of the Library. This support has led to The Portico becoming a key part of Manchester's literary scene, most notably through its prizes. The Portico Prize celebrates writing of outstanding quality and honours the strong literary heritage of the North of England. The Portico Sadie Massey Awards strives to instil a life long love of reading and writing.
