UEA's literary festival has welcomed a host of award-winning creative writers, journalists, illustrators, scientists, economists, broadcasters and more since 1991.

The Archive contains more than 450 recordings of these fascinating interviews and new collections are added each year.

You can watch some video releases below. Others can be accessed on UEA's New Writing website and in our Reading Room by appointment.
