Peepal Tree at Writing on Air festival with Chapel FM

Peepal Tree Press is pleased to be taking part in 2022's instalment of Writing on Air! There are a number of exciting programmes, including several Peepal Tree authors.

Writing on Air is a literature festival on the radio. Now in its eighth year, all programmes are conceived and created by upwards of 200 writers, readers, and performers from across Leeds and West Yorkshire, supported by the Chapel FM team. This year's theme is "Home" - from high rents to domestic bliss, from leaving home to finding a new one. A very good fit for Peepal Tree, you might say, and you'd be right.
