Reading Literature Festival 2016

reading literature festival 2016We’ve just had the first (2016) Reading Literature Festival as part of the town’s year of culture, very much run by Reading University. A good range of events, if somewhat small scale but I have hopes for the future. There were workshops, readings, lectures and various promotions for local publishers.

Reading Literature Festival Workshops

Today (13 November) there were a set of workshops held at the Museum of English Rural Life, and I attended the Playwriting session run by Kate Bassett, an associate professor at the University of Reading (and dramaturge – my word for the day!). Only a short session, but thought provoking nonetheless.
