The aim of the seminar is to bring together academics, publishers, translators and literary journalists to discuss writing today with authors from the UK whose work represents different aspects of contemporary literature.
The programme is shaped in such a way as to encourage intense discussions in both formal and informal settings. Each writer will give readings of his or her own work and there will be a series of panel discussions and workshops to which both writers as well as participants will actively contribute. It will be a comfortable environment for dialogue between British writers, their Russian peers and other participants.
The British participants of the seminar are award winning and critically acclaimed authors Janice Galloway, Alan Hollinghurst, Andrew Miller, Nadifa Mohamed and Sarah Perry. The seminar will be chaired by Dinah Birch - Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Impact and Professor of English Literature at the University of Liverpool.
Please note:The seminar will be held in English without translation.The number of participants is limited and applications will be shortlisted. The selected participants will need to pay a registration fee.
