Why we believe in paying our Authors

We've always paid our authors, right from the beginning. We believe we should as we're asking them to do a job and they may need to prepare and take time away from writing.

Marlborough's 2016 Big Town Read

Back by popular demand, Marlborough LitFest in partnership with The Reading Agency and World Book Night (23 April) have unveiled their ‘Big Town Read’ author for 2016. Following suggestions from local book groups Elizabeth Buchan was eventually chosen with her novel I Can’t Begin to Tell You which appears on this year’s World Book Night list.
