What's it all about?
The Penzance Literary Festival is a festival for everyone who enjoys words – the written word, the spoken word, the recited word and the sung word too.
Penzance Literary Festival began life in 2010 as a minor gathering on the fringes of a craft fair, but has expanded rapidly into a significant and diverse celebration of books, reading and writing, with music, theatre and performance poetry added to the mix. While it quickly began to attract big-name authors, the organisers made a decision at an early stage that the growing festival would always remain rooted in the local community.
The four-day festival, run in a Cornish seaside town,has grown to become a major event in the West Country literary calendar.
How can you take part?
This year the Penzance Litfest (3-6 July) marks its ninth edition with a distinctive and enticing line-up that underlines the town's growing reputation as a top holiday destination and a centre for the arts.
