York Literature Festival 2018
Thursday 15 - Monday 26 March 2018
Promoting the arts in York, with an emphasis on literature, spoken word and poetry. We also feature music, comedy, cinema and theatre in our programme. The festival takes place annually in March.
The festival team is working hard to produce another great programme of author readings, talks, creative workshops and spoken word events. 2018 sees the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and there will be some festival events celebrating this influential novel. We will also be exploring the concept of “speculative worlds” and there will be a focused strand of events focused around history and historical fiction.
After last year’s success, we will also see the return of the HUB during the 2018 festival, once again celebrating the creative talent from the local York area. Please note that submissions for this year’s HUB programme will open shortly.
Authors and artists will be revealed in due course. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter @YorkLitFest for details as they are released.
