Worlds is the UK’s premier international literary symposium, providing a unique forum for writers and translators from across the world to meet, share their work and develop future collaborations. Each June we invite 25-30 writers, translators, publishers and others and spend four days talking and thinking about writing. Alongside this we run a public programme of events to enable people to enjoy writing from across the globe.

Over recent years we’ve hosted some wonderful writers including; J.M. Coetzee, Michael Ondaatje, CK Williams, Adam Zagajewski, Jeanette Winterson, Teju Cole, Mia Couto and many more.
