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.
Submissions for the 2016 festival are now closed. We have limited slots at the festival. If we haven’t let you know otherwise, you’re unsuccessful on this occasion. Sorry
