The Edge Chronicles was first published 21 years ago and has become one of the best-loved fantasy series for children, with over 3 million copies sold worldwide. After 13 books and numerous spin-offs, 2019 will see the series draw to an epic and unforgettable conclusion with the publication of the final book in the saga, The Descenders.

In this wonderful workshop for kids aged 11+, Paul Stewart, author of the series as well as multiple other books, will give tips on how to create compelling characters and exciting settings in stories, how to harness your imagination and how to collaborate with an illustrator.


This year we are excited to launch our new B-Lit Programme for young people aged 13 – 18, made possible by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Look out for events marked with the B-Lit stamp as tickets are free for anybody aged 18 or under.
