2020: The Year everything is a bit different...

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

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.​
