Leeds Lit Fest is delighted to have commissioned ten new and original podcasts for the 2020 Festival funded by Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council.

In response to their surroundings in that moment, the featured writers talk about the relationship between their own writing and the idea of place.
