"The 2016 York Literature Festival Programme is our most diverse, and one of the best programmes we have assembles. The year, nearly all of the contributors join us for the first time, and the claim 'there is something for everybody' is more true than ever. High profile names, a kids programme, comedy, writing workshops, poetry, feminism, trains, graphic novels and football - it's all here!"
Miles Salter, Festival Director
The York Literature Festival continues to build upon its successes since 2007. The event contributes to the cultural life of York and the surrounding area, and thrives on the goodwill and participation of many local groups, organisations and individuals, and showcases the work of many local up and coming writers.
