With thanks to funding from Arts Council England’s Strategic touring Fund, we are delighted to be partnering with SWRLS (the South Western Regional Library Service) to bring a 26-venue live literature tour to libraries from the Isles of Scilly to Somerset in 2018.


Word on Tour is a celebration of writing talent across the South West region. The tour will play host to some of our finest novelists, nature writers, poets, playwrights, performers, children’s authors and one musician.



We’re touring libraries from January – September 2018.


We aim to attract those new to libraries and the wonderful resources they offer. We hope to inspire future live literature events in your community in years to come.
