Birmingham Literature Festival 2018

Welcome to the October 2018 Birmingham Literature Festival!

@BhamLitFest are delighted to present 10 days of inspiring, thought-provoking and entertaining events in venues across Birmingham city centre, which not only showcase great books and writers from the UK and abroad, but also create space to bring people together for great conversation and ideas.

Our programme is packed with events celebrating words, books and ideas in many forms. We've sought out the most exciting up-and-coming writers alongside well-established names, with events including panel discussions, author talks and new book launches, writing workshops, nature walks and a trip on-board a narrowboat. Performance also plays a huge part in this year’s festival, with shows that fuse theatre, music and storytelling, and others that combine poetry and even live cooking on stage. 

As part of this year’s festival, it has also been a joy to work with journalist and writer Sathnam Sanghera who has curated some very special events with key writers from the West Midlands, about which you can see more below.
We hope you feel as excited by this programme as we are, and we look forward to seeing you in October.

Apples & Snakes Write Ins: Birmingham

Apples and Snakes are official partners for this year's National Writing Day (27th June if you didn't already know).

In celebration of writing and writers everywhere, we are opening up our regional office at Impact HUB Birmingham to invite writers of all ages and levels to come and use the space to write for the day. Prompts and writing activities if needed will be supplied by Poets Place's Jasmine Gardosi.

Prompts will also be available online so follow @ApplesandSnakes or @applesMidlands on Twitter between 10am and 6pm for writing gems :)

If you're feeling brave, share some of your work at Impact Hub's Poetry Pot Luck Lunch special. Bring a dish too if you're really willing to share.

Come write pretty words with Apples and Snakes.
