The festival aims to champion the creative voices of Wolverhampton and the West Midlands and provide a platform to showcase their talents. 

This year’s line-up includes Irvine Welsh, speaking about his new crime thriller and also reflecting on 2023 as the 30th anniversary year of his million-selling debut novel, Trainspotting, Robin Ince, Richard Herring, Suhaiymah Manzoor Khan, Jazzie B, Emma Kennedy, Wolverhampton’s Poet Laureate Kuli Kohli, Miki Berenyi, Brian Bilston and the Digital Sisterhood - to name only a few. 

Central Youth Theatre will be back, performing Lord of the Files in the atmospheric venue of Wolverhampton Grammar School. The Arena Theatre will host some of the Language for Liberation strand of the programme on the Saturday, followed by a live recording of the Dungeons and Dragons podcast, Sixteen Candlekeeps, on the Sunday.

For the first time, Wolverhampton Literature Festival is collaborating with Wolverhampton Film Festival for a showcase of local filmmakers.

There is also a range of events for children at Central Library, with the chance to see some BSL storytelling, take part in a Shakespearean insults workshop and join in with storytelling and crafts.

Wolverhampton Community Radio will also be hosting a programme of events and live broadcasts throughout the festival at the Mander Centre Community Hub.

It will be an exciting weekend of literature, poetry, prose and storytelling!
