Bringing you the best British crime fiction LIVE and ONLINE!
The British Council Literature Seminar brings together an impressive group of contemporary British writers over three days in January for a mixture of readings, discussions and workshops. It offers students, academics, publishers, translators, journalists and literature fans from across Europe the chance to hear the latest writing from the UK and engage with the writers and their work at first hand.
The theme of the 2016 seminar is "Brit Crime – A New Golden Age of Crime Writing?"
