Our mission is to promote literature by connecting writers and readers with the involvement of strategic partners and the wider community in Worcestershire.
- Spoken word performances
- Poetry slams
- Schools and children’s events and activities
- Music that tells a story
we’ve been asked for:
- Crime Fiction / Panel
- Radio broadcasts
- Street poetry and prose
We are developing and supporting a wide range of literary activities and events, encompassing different venues in the county including St Swithun’s Institute, The University of Worcester, St John’s Library, The Guildhall in Worcester and many more. We also have many schools in Worcestershire who participate in Festival and Fringe events on an ongoing basis.
We have updated a number of key strategic partnerships with local and regional organisations, publishers and other organisations such as The Hive, University of Worcester, Worcestershire County Council, Worcester City Council, Apples & Snakes, Arts Council West Midlands. We wish to enhance these relationships and develop many more over the coming months.
‘Worcestershire LitFest & Fringe’ is now well known as our ‘new’ title though we are generally known as ‘LitFest’. For legal reasons we retain the name Worcestershire Literary Festival and use it for the 10-day festival. It is always wonderful to see so many interested and interesting people join us to share their views about our not for profit organisation.
