Event details

Presented by the Nuffield Theatre

Writers in Conversation features some of today’s best fiction writers, poets, non-fiction writers and playwrights reading from their work and talking about their writing lifestyle - how characters take shape and where ideas come from. Led by creative writing lecturers at the University of Southampton, the event takes place in Nuffield Kitchen, helping to create an evening that is relaxed, engaging and intelligent, yet informal.

Carole Burns' collection of stories, The Missing Woman, was longlisted for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award. Her book Off the Page: Writers Talk About Beginnings, Endings, and Everything in Between, was based on interviews with 43 writers including A.S. Byatt, Anthony Doerr, Colm Tóibín and Andrea Levy. She reviews books and interviews authors for The Washington Post, and is head of creative writing at the University of Southampton.
