The Writers' Guild of Great Britain Presents Dickens - A Writers' Contemporary

How influential is the work of Charles Dickens on contemporary writers? As we celebrate the bi-centenary of his birth it seems appropriate to explore just what it is that makes Dickens such an inspiration to those who write fiction and what they draw on from his writing.

This event organised by The Writers' Guild of Great Britain and St George's Hall aims to do exactly that.

A guest panel of leading established and emerging writers, from novelists to scriptwriters working in theatre, film, television and radio will discuss the relevance of Charles Dickens to their own work as writers today and why his work remains so relevant to both readers and writers.

Chaired by The Reader Organisation's Amanda Brown, the panel includes: screenwriter and novelist Frank Cottrell-Boyce, playwright David Edgar, screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes, film and radio scriptwriter Ayeesha Menon and novelist and playwright Deborah Morgan.

The evening includes readings from the panel's favourite passages from Dickens' work and the opportunity for the audience to ask questions and share observations.
