The 2014 Essex Book Festival is now programmed and at the
printers. We hope to start distributing brochures to
libraries and other venues around the county in the next
week. At the same time, we will upload the brochure onto the
website so you can browse to your heart's content.
The Festival box office will open for bookings on Monday 6 January 2014 and we're confident you'll find something you won't want to miss! We have writing workshops with splendid professional tutors; we have politicians; we have many entertaining speakers, both well known and newly accoladed.
Festival brochure are available from Essex Libraries and other venues.
Remember to keep your eye on the Extra pages of the website to watch the progress of our Making Waves shortlisted writers. You'll be able to hear their stories on the theme of 'horizons' from the beginning of March.
For literature development activities please go to the Extra pages on the website.
