Local Authors

We are delighted to partner with Andrew Marsh from Dial Lane, Ipswich’s only independent bookshop. Andrew runs a pop-up book shop at our events and is active in advertising Suffolk Book League. He is also enthusiastic about promoting local authors. We asked him to list 40 local writers in celebration of our 40th Anniversary. Typically generous, Andrew added a few extras. You might want to visit his shop and ask him about some of the titles he chose. They are listed in no particular order; he could have provided us with dozens more.

We live in a very rich, prolific literary landscape.
