Marlborough Literature Festival
30 September – 2 October 2016
We are committed to celebrating the best in writing. This year there was lots to interest everyone including history, biography, humour, poetry, politics, fantasy and prizewinning fiction.
We believe in paying our authors. 2016 will be our seventh year. It is thanks to our sponsors and friends we have been able to pay authors a fee and their expenses from the very beginning.
We’ve always paid our authors right from the beginning. We believe we should as we’re asking them to do a job and they may need to prepare and take time away from writing.
We are very pleased to announce Page Turners – an event organised by students at St John’s Marlborough which will take place in St Mary’s Church Hall at 1.30pm on Saturday 3rd October. Tickets are free to this event.
Together with digital content director Terence O’Connor we are promoting ‘great stories.’ These are natural conversation captured between the students of St John’s School Marlborough. The students present ten diaries where they discuss the stories they have read, are reading, or would like to read. Recorded on phones, edited on phones and Apple computers. We hope you enjoy the candid moments captured by the students.
