Festival announces payment of author fees for 2017

The Oxford Literary Festival today announces that it will pay an author fee of £150 to all authors speaking at the 2017 festival and thereafter.

We have conferred with interested parties and, recognising the strength of feeling, have rebalanced our budgets to enable this to happen.

We will announce the first of our speakers for the 2017 festival in the middle of December. We can promise another inspiring and diverse Oxford Literary Festival.
