Parisot Literary Festival

Members of the Parisot Writing Group, to which I belong, will be reading some of their short stories during the Parisot Literary Festival (Festilitt).

The festival takes place from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd October this year. On the Sunday morning, a variety of literary events will be going on, as well as our readings. They include a Big Read discussion of the late Helen Dunmore’s last novel Birdcage Walk, an illustration workshop and the chance to meet artists who’ve contributed to the Festilitt Exhibition.

Festival-goers will be free to stroll around the village and take part in any of these events. 

Hope to see you there!
