European Writers’ Festival: Festival Partners



18-19 May 2024

British Library, London


KATHERINE BUTLER, The Guardian, Associate Editor Europe, says:

The European Writers’ Festival is a valuable cultural coming-together that aligns with the Guardian’s commitment to our readers across Europe and beyond. I’m thrilled that the Guardian’s senior international correspondent Luke Harding will be hosting the festival’s keynote event, in conversation with leading Ukrainian novelist Andrey Kurkov. The Guardian has a 200-year history of reporting Europe. Guardian Europe, our new digital edition foregrounds the European voices, ideas and cultural debates that reflect and shape the modern continent and transcend its political and linguistic borders; an approach which this festival also celebrates.

ROBERT POTTS, Deputy Editor, The Times Literary Supplement, says:

We are delighted to support the European Writer’s Festival. We have always offered unrivalled coverage of European literature, both in translation and in the original languages, alongside expert analysis of European culture and politics, and we are proud to share the festival’s commitment to literature, culture, dialogue and partnership.

ZOE SADLER, Events and Prizes Manager, English PEN, says:

English PEN is delighted to support the European Writers’ Festival once again. With so many languages and countries represented, each producing an inspiring range of stories, the festival could not be more aligned with English PEN’s commitment to celebrating literature across borders and in translation.

LUCY SHACKLETON, Head of Public Policy and Partnerships, UCL European Institute, University College London, says:

UCL European Institute and UCL Arts & Humanities are delighted to be supporting this year’s European Writer’s Festival, and the work it does to provide a platform for, and stimulate exchange between, some of the most exciting writers in Europe today.We are also thrilled to be offering a Writer in Residency programme linked to the European Writers’ Festival for the first time, as part of a wider project to support new writing on London from a European perspective, and to highlight the city’s enduring relevance as a hub for European – and global – culture.
