Online since 2007, we provide details of hundreds of Community Literary Festivals, a literary news stream, major book award results and a publicity boost for authors. Follow the menu prompts above to update or submit new event or author details. Follow us on Twitter @litfests or on Facebook to keep in the literary loop. This new version of the site has replaced our previous creaking monolith (a metaphor for our times?), so, 'there be gremlins lurking'; any comments, bouquets or brickbats, speak to us gently via the contact page.
