We were scuppered in our attempts to run a festival in person in 2020 because, well, Covid.

BUT! Opportunity struck.

So we've commissioned a podcast, hosted a series of interviews with writers, artists, broadcasters, journalists and thinkers over the summer and early autumn, and we're delighted to say it's ready for you to enjoy.

From Friday 2 October, and then every subsequent Thursday until Christmas 2020, we'll be releasing an episode which you can subscribe to wherever you get your podcasts.

Search for: "Birmingham Lit Fest Presents..." in your podcast provider.

Tell us what you think, and what you'd like to hear!

You can find us on TwitterFacebook and Instagram at @bhamlitfest.

Accessibility: Full transcripts are available in every episode's show notes. Please contact us via the contact form if you require any other format.
