We'll regularly add new names to our list of featured writers - some have written brand new work especially for us which can be read on the website (or you can listen to the author reading their work), some have been chosen because they have recently won awards or have written fantastic new books and others are newly published writers who we think you might like. The writers featured here may have appeared at past Book Festivals or be due to appear at the next Festival.
