The Bristol Festival of Literature is a celebration of the creative word and is organised by a community of volunteers from across the city.
- Bristol Festival of Literature is a programme of events and performances celebrating creative writing. We inspire audiences with the very best local, UK and international authors, we engage communities with events in unusual places and we equip writers at all levels with workshops and masterclasses. Let Mike, one of our organisers, explain what it's all about.
Showcasing the best in Bristol writing
- We were lucky to feature a number of amazing performance nights as part of the festival. We hosted events in collaboration with Writers Unchained, the Stokescroft Writers, Novel Nights, Let Me Tell You a Story Jack and many, many more.
Events to inspire and educate
- We held a number of workshop sessions and discussions during the festival. Events like Making History and How to be Your Own Publisher were designed to help writers hone their craft, while the festival also saw several panel events.
