Literature Live

The Centre for New Writing hosts a public programme of Literature Live readings and talks.

Our reading series, now known as Literature Live, was launched by Louis de Bernieres in October 2005.

Since then we've hosted an impressive line-up of writers including Will Self, Sarah Waters, John Banville, Paul Muldoon, Toby Litt, Rose Tremain, Hanif Kureishi, Hilary Mantel, Neil Gaiman, Colm Toibin, Ciaran Carson, Jorie Graham and Michele Roberts.

"In Conversation" with Jeanette Winterson

"In Conversation" is a series of readings and discussions with distinguished guests at the invitation of Professor Jeanette Winterson.

Previous "In Conversation" events have included guest authors Lynne Truss, Audrey Niffeneggar, and A. L. Kennedy.

The readings and talks are part of our Centre's MA programmes and students are expected to attend as part of their courses.

Tickets are, however, available to anyone who wants to attend.
