Mother Tongue Other Tongue is a national project, led by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Director of the
Manchester Writing School at MMU. An idea originally developed by the Faculty of Humanities, Languages and
Social Science at MMU and Routes into Languages North West, this exciting project is being rolled out nationally
as this year’s Laureate Education Project, with regional events and competitions taking place throughout 2013.
The first of the regional launches took place in the North West on 30th January 2013, with subsequent regions
across England and Wales planning launches for their projects throughout the year. In November 2013, regional
winners from across the country will convene at MMU for a national celebration of the diverse range of languages
and cultures that make up the United Kingdom today.
