The Black Country has a rich literary heritage, and a new festival aims to explore and celebrate the creative life of the region.
The Wolverhampton Original Literary Festival (WOLF) will be staged from 27-29th January 2017, featuring readings, workshops, theatre, poetry and performance.
I'll be appearing alongside Kerry Hadley-Pryce, R.M. Francis and Paul McDonald on Saturday 28th January at an event looking at the dark side of Black Country literature. Unlooked For Places exposes the 'murky underbelly of life'.
Further literature-related events can be found at WOLF, and more announcements will follow shortly.
