UEA Literary Festivals - welcoming great writers since 1991
The University of East Anglia's first literary festival took place in 1991 and over the last twenty two years we have welcomed a host of award-winning authors, journalists, illustrators, scientists, economists, broadcasters and more. If you would like to see which writers have taken part in our fesitvals over the years, visit our Archive page.
The 2015 Spring festival begins on Wednesday 25 February and runs until Wednesday 29 April.
We are delighted to present seven exceptional writers, highlighting particularly exciting and engaging literary voices and developments. This spring’s Literary Festival is about life lived and life mourned, it’s about nature at its most vital. These writers tell tales worth telling, whether fictional or fact based. They also address most directly and compassionately the reader, the audience, in their bids to determine the importance of the written word as a vehicle for both art and truth. There will be laughter, some tears, insight and brilliant entertainment. We hope you enjoy these events as much as we’ve enjoyed programming them.
