Over three days (12-15 September) the festival will present talks, performances, panel discussions, literary cabaret, a beach walk, and a literary History Club. There will be opportunities to meet other writers, to participate in writing workshop activities, and to buy and browse at our bookfair.
All events will take place at The Spire, the magnificent Grade II listed community arts centre in East Brighton. Many events will be free or low-cost, and bursary places will be available to all ticketed events. Read more
