‘Last year’s PoW-WoW was great fun: lively audiences, inspiring readings, interesting insights to the world of publishing, not to mention the best burger I’ve ever had…’ - Charlie Brotherstone, literary agent.
‘LitFest makes me glad I’ve moved back to Birmingham. As a speaker giving a talk, the audience for my session was like a welcoming floodlight: very warm and friendly but absolutely knowing their stuff and wanting me to know mine too. I had a ball and I’ve stayed in touch with people I met for the first time in the audience that day.’ William Gallagher, scriptwriter.
