The Football Writing Festival is back in action this November at the National Football Museum.
From Monday 1 November to Friday 5 November, the museum will be bringing together some of its favourite sports writers and journalists for five nights of interviews, insight and debate about the beautiful game.
Three of the events will be held in person at the museum, while two can be viewed entirely free of charge via the museum's YouTube channel.
The festival kicks off with a trio of top journalists sharing their stories in the Pitch Gallery. The Guardian's Suzanne Wrack and BBC Sport's Alison Bender will be discussing the ground-breaking new anthology, Football, She Wrote. They will be joined by Julie Welch, Fleet Street's first female reporter, as they talk about their experiences within an industry dominated, then and now, by men.
Festival fans can enjoy two events entirely free via the National Football Museum's YouTube channel. On Tuesday 2 November, BBC Sport's Miriam Walker-Khan will be interviewing the author of the Bend It Like Beckham novelisation, Narinder Dhami. The award-winning children's writer will be discussing the seminal 2002 film, its conversion into a different format, and the development of women's football over the past two decades.
