The two-day winter micro-festival will take place on 4 and 5 February

Hearth is an intimate festival that offers writers the chance to learn more about the writing and publishing process from four authors who, over the course of the weekend, will give talks and be in conversation.

The authors featuring at Hearth in February are:
• Caroline Brothers, author of the novels Hinterland and The Memory Stones, who will be discussing fictional truths and how to carve out a story without getting bogged down by research.

• Julia Forster, who wrote the novel What a Way to Go, who'll be talking about maintaining momentum with large writing projects.

• Antonia Honeywall, author of dystopian YA novel The Ship, will be looking at writers who explore the present by examining the future.

• Malachy Tallack, author of Undiscovered Islands, will give an illustrated talk on exploring the world's strangest places.

Hearth tickets are £12 (individual event), £32.50 (day) and £55 (weekend). All tickets include free entry to Saturday night's panel discussion with all four featured authors.
