Join the University of York and New Writing North for an evening of author readings, discussions and networking celebrating the North’s vibrant writing scene. In recent years we have seen a surge of support for talented emerging writers in our region, significant successes from independents such as Saraband, and stunning explorations of Northern landscapes – of its places and people.
The University of York, New Writing North and Saraband continue to encourage and support writing talent with programmes such as the NorthBound Award. This event is a chance to showcase some of the fantastic books created in the region – and to inspire those stories which are yet to be written.
7pm - Readings from NorthBound winners Adam Farrer and J. A. Mensah, and Northern Writers’ Awards winners Kit Fan and Alison Armstrong.
8pm - Roundtable on the importance of supporting and publishing Northern writing with Sara Hunt (Saraband) , Janine Bradbury (University of York), Karen Lloyd (editor of North Country). Chaired by Kathryn Tann (New Writing North).
8.45pm - Drinks and networking for students, writers and literary professionals
