Established in 2007, Literary Festival UK provides a dedicated online platform to promote community Literary Festivals and authors from the UK and Ireland. Over 350 literary festivals are listed and hundreds of authors.
The site gets 10,000 visitors a week in peak season with social media reach in excess of 3 million pa. The project is sponsored, run & programmed by Kev Parker on a largely voluntary basis with authors and literary festivals chipping-in when able (and thank you all for that). A few quid a year is derived from ads on the site.
If you would like to make a contribution towards costs then Kevin will shower you with metaphorical fields of wildflowers. You can do so by the PayPal module below.
If you approve of the service then please give us a Like Tick on our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter. Please feel free to drop Kev a line if you would like to establish contact,have any questions or would just like to say hello!
From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs.
