Liverpool Daily Post to run online literary festival

18th February 2010

Horror writer Ramsey Campbell has lent his support to a new online literary festival launched in Liverpool.

The Liverpool Daily Post's LiveRead festival will run from March 15th to the 19th and feature interviews with several internationally acclaimed authors, including Campbell - who said he is 'delighted' to be taking part in the event.

'I've been setting tales of terror in contemporary Liverpool for 45 years now and I look forward to the feedback from readers,' the Thieving Fear author commented.

The festival will also see bestselling author and Daily Post columnist Jane Costello present a live seminar giving budding authors advice on how to get their work published, while a project will see a serialised story written according to the votes of readers.

Furthermore, an online book group will discuss the novels of five-time Booker Prize-nominated Beryl Bainbridge and playwright Willy Russell.

Last week, the Bristol Festival of Ideas announced the authors on the longlist for its GBP 10,000 book prize, with nominees including Madeleine Bunting, Francis Wheen, Dambisa Moyo and David Horspool.
