Welcome to the York Literature Festival website
The festival promotes the arts in York, with an emphasis on literature, spoken word and poetry. We also feature music, comedy, cinema and theatre in our programme. The festival takes place annually in March.
Planning is underway for our 2017 Festival. Please note we are no longer accepting submissions. Details of our 2017 Festival will be posted here as soon as it is available.
We are looking for local people of all ages, interests and backgrounds to help us make the Festival as successful as possible. Find out more.
