The Penzance Literary Festival is a festival for everyone who enjoys words – the written word, the spoken word, the recited word and the sung word too. It aims to inspire everyone who attends with the joy of reading, writing and performing, and of watching, listening and discussing with other people. Its organizers are committed to providing a litfest that is inclusive, local, affordable and distinctive.

We always have talks by prize-winning authors and by people with a deep knowledge of subjects special to West Cornwall. We have ’round table’ discussions, authors in conversation, and workshops on writing, self-publishing, poetry etc. Performance and entertainment feature prominently. 2015 will be our sixth Festival.

The 2015 Festival will again have its hub at The Acorn Theatre in central Penzance.
