The University of East Anglia's first literary festival took place in 1991 and since then it has welcomed a host of award-winning creative writers, journalists, illustrators, scientists, economists, broadcasters and more. 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 and others can be viewed on UEA's New Writing Net Website or in our Reading Room by appointment.
