About Birmingham Literature Festival

 The Birmingham Literature Festival is a project of  Writing West Midlands, the literature development agency for the region. We are a charity and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. 

Taking place every year in October, the Birmingham Literature Festival is a leading festival in the Midlands, showcasing the very best writers, speakers, thinkers, activists and artists from the UK and across the world. We programme and commission a wide range of innovative literature and literature-inspired work, creating unique opportunities for audiences to experience high quality events via our annual festival programmes and associated projects.

 

We work with a wide range of partners and venues, presenting live events and activities across the city, as well as in digital formats and online.

Our filmmaker Paul Stringer and podcaster Lucy Ryan spent some time at Birmingham Literature Festival in April 2018, taking you behind the scenes and talking to audiences and speakers.
