Discovering witches: Litfest book launch this month

Blake Morrison
Multi-talented poet, prose-writer and literary critic Blake Morrison launches a collection of poems new and old published by Lancaster's Litfest this month.

A Discoverie of Witches contains poems that give voice to the participants and victims of the Lancashire Witch Trials of 1612 alongside works influenced by the dark Pennine landscape of Blake's childhood.

A Special limited edition format of A Discoverie of Witches, exclusive to Litfest, numbered and signed by Blake Morrison and including a DVD interview with the author, will be available, priced £39.99. The standard edition co-published with Smith / Doorstop Books will be available from October.
