This month the ILS turns physical as it converges on Norwich in the UK, a UNESCO City of Literature, bringing together 20 of our showcased British writers and over 50 literature professionals from around the world.

There's an exciting programme of panels and readings and throughout the week which we'll be live streaming via Facebook. The videos will be linked to direct from this page, so make sure you've got it open from 1pm Tuesday 20 June!

The full programme for ILS Norwich has been revealed and you can browse the digital guide right now over on Trello.

Be there online

We couldn't invite all 1000+ ILS participants to join us in person, which is why we will be live streaming panels and readings, while blending digital and physical spaces through our use of Slack, Trello and social media.

Panel discussions will be streamed in 360 video. Watch using a headset like Google Cardboard for an immersive experience.
