Each will provide insights into accessibility challenges faced by authors and readers alike, touching on personal experiences, broader issues, and ongoing efforts to eliminate barriers. This engaging session offers practical resources and opportunities for involvement but also explores the evolving landscape of accessibility and the future of inclusive literature.
Dan Holloway is a poet, novelist, journalist, editor and performer. Dan loves the writing and research process but comes into his own when given a microphone. He is the rabble rouser in chief of The New Libertines, who have been touring the UK’s festivals and fringes since 2011.

When Dan’s not doing writing things he runs ultramarathons and appears on cheesy TV game shows.
