Speaker Biography

Keith Stuart is the Guardians games editor and is probably the best known gameswriter in the UK's national press. Keith's background as writer has been for official playstation magazine, PC gamer and T3. Keith started out as a writer and features editor on the highly influencial magazine Edge before going freelance in 2000 to cover games culture publications. Keith currently works for the Guardian writing about music, film and media and is a regular on the Tech Weekly podcast.

The talk will be around his debut novel A Boy Made of Blocks, a story of love, family, autism and Minecraft, which is based on his own experiences with his autistic son.
