From the small and intimate poetry readings held in Leamington in the 1970s to current sell-out events featuring authors in the Warwick Arts Centre, the University of Warwick has long recognised the value of hearing writers performing their own work. Many of these readings were recorded and they have now been collected together online in the Writers at Warwick Audio Archive. In this app you can listen to authors reading and discussing their work, in some cases at several points throughout their careers.
