Literature & Spoken Word Festivals

For examples of events that I have produced and that celebrate words, please see the links at the bottom of this page…

A Love of Words

I’ve been involved in organising a few gatherings of storytellers, writers, readers and spoken word artists.

They’ve included a broad range of ways of telling stories, short and long, loud and quiet, simple and complex. The main objective has been fostering a love of words in young and old.

Incidentally, spoken word is a term that includes any kind of poetry recited aloud, including poetry readings, poetry slams, hip hop, etc.
