With thanks to funding from Arts Council England’s Strategic touring Fund, we were 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. Now we'd like to share some legacy resources which are designed to support libraries in putting on live literature events.
Word on Tour was a celebration of writing talent across the South West region. The tour played host to some of our finest novelists, nature writers, poets, playwrights, performers, children’s authors and one musician.
We aimed to attract those new to libraries and the wonderful resources they and to inspire future live literature events in local communities in years to come.
We’ve designed three downloadable resources which can be used as tools by librarians who would like to put on live literature events in their unique spaces.
