Put down your book or Kindle – MK Lit Fest is back!
Celebrating ‘everything bookish or wordy’, Milton Keynes Literary Festival returns for its second year from 21st to 24th September, and the 2018 event oﬀers an even more impressive line-up of authors, poets and performers.
The Holiday Inn in Central Milton Keynes will be transformed into a uniquely booky festival space, and all are welcome to come and mingle with the literary crowd, meet renowned authors, discover new authors, get books signed or take part in a workshop and become wordsmiths themselves.
Readers and theatregoers will recognise bestselling authors such as Mark Haddon, Stella Duﬀy, Adam Mars-Jones and Bryony Lavery.
Fans of performance poetry will be able to see modern icons Lemn Sissay and Hollie McNish and budding writers will be able to learn skills from the Open University’s Creative Writing Team.
Local talent is on oﬀer too, including translator Joe Laredo, best-selling author Adam Croft, and children’s book designer & writer Kate Milner.
As well as all this, there are storytelling performances and workshops and a breakfast launch of MK Foodbank’s heartfelt anthology, Tales from the Foodbank.
With more than 30 events in total across the weekend, there is a title for everyone and they’re all page-turners!
