European Writers Festival


EUNIC London presents



18-19 May 2024 at the British Library, London

Booking is now open for this year’s European Writers’ Festival at the British Library.
Join us for a weekend of prose, poetry and discussion with 30 emerging and established authors from across Europe.

As we in Europe are once again shaken to the core by conflict and upheaval, the second European
Writers’ Festival addresses the theme of Transformation, hoping to demonstrate that
community, debate, entertainment and storytelling can unite us in creating hope and positive
transformation. Bigger, better and braver, the 2024 Festival is a unique opportunity to enjoy
some of the best European prose and poetry in English translation over one star-studded
weekend. Full programme HERE

Italian guest Igiaba Scego will take part to the panel dedicated to Change and Conflict, taking place on Saturday 18 May at 4.15pm: Our festival writers come from all over the world.  What is the impact of war, conflict and displacement on how they live, think and write? How does conflict and geography influence their sense of belonging and identity? Can they ever forget trauma and loss or is the shadow of war and conflict always present, always part of their creative process? With Pajtim Statovci (Finland), Igiaba Scego (Italy) and Iryna Shuvalova (Ukraine).

Other writers taking part in the Festival are Dean Atta (Cyprus), Selcuk Altan
(Turkey), Anne Berest (France), Christos Chomenidis (Greece), Emma Dabiri (Ireland), Joanna
Elmy*(Bulgaria), Ioana Parvulescu (Romania), Margo Rejmer (Poland), Iryna Shuvalova
(Ukraine) and many more. Special guest Andrey Kurkov will be in conversation with The Guardian’s Luke Harding. Full list of authors HERE
