Birmingham Literature Festival: October 2020

The year everything is a bit different…

Birmingham Literature Festival, a project of Writing West Midlands, returns this autumn.

We’re making the best of the ongoing situation, and the ever-changing restrictions and guidelines, and moving the Birmingham Literature Festival online.

We know how much we love seeing our audiences during the usual 10 days of live events in mid-October, and we know the authors and speakers really enjoy meeting you and hearing what you think of their writing and the event.

This autumn will be different – and, hopefully, we’ll be back in 2021 for live events in person.

We’ll be releasing a series of specially-commissioned podcast discussions (available from 1 October from all your usual podcast distribution services), online writer workshops (on sale from 7 September), and one-off live digital events curated in partnership with Durham Book Festival and Nine Arches Press.​
