The Emirates LitFest 2013 official video
The Main Programme lies at the heart of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature – a rich and diverse array of panel discussions, in-depth interviews, poetry readings, debates, workshops & masterclasses featuring authors from all over the world. It’s a chance to meet your favourite authors – or to discover someone new.

To find out more about individual authors and speakers who attended in 2013 you can also scroll through our author listing for short biographies and visit our revamped blog to see what they have to say about writing, festivals and whatever else crosses their minds.
We also created a series of articles focusing on particular strands and themes that featured in the 2013 Festival, which can be found below.
