The 9th edition of the Penzance Litfest will run from 4-7 July

Known for its friendly atmosphere and strong sense of community, the Penzance Litfest celebrates words in all their many forms, and welcomes contributions that will inspire, entertain and inform our enthusiastic audiences.

Taking Flight is their theme for the 2018 festival and submissions are now open. Perhaps you have written an inspiring memoir about change, a novel about someone starting a new life, a new beginning, or maybe a book about aircraft … Whatever it is, they love creativity at the Litfest and can’t wait to see your interpretation.

Everything you need to know about making a submission can be found at the Litfest website.

The closing date is January 12th, so you have time to let your imagination take flight!
