PZ Litfest 2013
will run from
Wednesday, July 17th
Sunday, July 21st
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. It aims to inspire everyone who attends with the joy of reading, writing and performing, and of watching, listening and discussing with other people. It is committed to providing a litfest that is inclusive, local, affordable and distinctive.
We always have talks by prize-winning authors and by people with a deep knowledge of subjects special to West Cornwall. We have ’round table’ discussions, authors in conversation, and workshops on writing, self-publishing, poetry etc. Performance and entertainment feature prominently in the evenings. 2013 will be our fourth Festival, and to go by our experience in previous years a tremendous ‘buzz’ is guaranteed!
The 2013 Festival will again be based at The Acorn theatre in central Penzance. Our other main venues – the Morrab Library, Penlee Coach House, Open Shed in Causewayhead, the Lost and Found Cafe in Chapel Street, the Admiral Benbow, The Exchange gallery, The Old Dairy and The Edge of the World Bookshop – are all close by. Because most of the Festival’s venues are small, it’s easy for members of the audience to ask questions and contribute to discussions, making for a very informal and lively atmosphere. Festival-goers tell us they have learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed themselves too. If you enjoy words, do come and join us!
