Dundee Literary Festival opens doors

23rd June 2010

The 2010 Dundee Literary Festival has opened today and will welcome a number of authors over the next five days.

Hosted by the University of Dundee, the festival has a wide-ranging programme that features masterclasses to help budding authors work on poetry and short stories, readings from top writers and the official launch of the New Writing Dundee collection.

Festival director Anna Day explained: 'We are bringing together some of the most talked about names from the world of literature, journalism, philosophy and politics. We have workshops, talks, film, theatre, book signings, music and parties.'

Writers who will appear at the Dundee Literary Festival include Life Of Pi author Yann Martel, Costa Prize-winning poet Christopher Reid, novelist Alan Warner and biographer John Carey.

At the University of Dundee's annual graduation ceremony yesterday (June 22nd), writer Rosamunde Pilcher was awarded an honorary degree. The author has written around 30 novels such as The Shell Seekers and Coming Home, selling more than 30 million books.
