"Having come into education quite late in my own career, I want to communicate my own passion for reading and creative writing and to tell young people that anything is possible. Treat your time here as a student at Manchester Met as an internship. Your course is more than just what you do in the classroom. There are plenty of opportunities to be had. Look out for them and get involved."
Kaye Tew is the Director of the Manchester Children's Book Festival, established by Carol Ann Duffy at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2010.
