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.
This autumn will be different - and, hopefully, we'll be back in 2021 for live events in person. We hope you enjoy this year's festival, which you can enjoy and take part in from the comfort of your home.
We're running a series of our ever-popular 2-hour writing workshops online throughout October, on subjects as varied as Poetry for Joy and Happiness to How Publishing Works and Poetry in Translation.

Live Streamed Online Events
We've commissioned and curated a podcasts series talking to some of the most interesting writers working today.
The podcast feed will be available from 28 September, with the first episode published on Friday 2 October, and weekly thereafter.
