Brighton Book Festival invites you to join us on a fantastical journey. Fantasy fiction is big business. In recent years, it has become one of the fastest-growing genres in publishing.

Sunday 23rd June. 3.30pm

What does it look like when it’s not westernised? And how do writers from marginalised backgrounds navigate a space that’s still monopolised by white American men? Join authors Saara El-Arifi, N. E. Davenport and Tasha Suri to find out.

Saara El-Arifi is the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Final Strife and The Battle Drum, the first two instalments of The Ending Fire Trilogy inspired by her Ghanaian and Sudanese heritage. After a decade in marketing and communications, she returned to academia to complete a master’s degree in African studies alongside her writing career. She lives in London.

Nia ‘N. E.’ Davenport is the author of The Blood Trials and its sequel, The Blood Gift. She studied Biological Sciences and Theatre Arts at the University of Southern California and has an MA in Secondary Education. When she isn’t writing, she teaches English and biology and advocates for diverse perspectives and protagonists in literature. She lives in Texas.
