Join Monty Lit Fest for a weekend of culture and conversation in Montgomery over the weekend of 10-12th June. Celebrating writing from Wales, the Borders and beyond.

Meet at least 20 confirmed authors over the weekend including Bella Bathurst, Horatio Clare, Janice Hallett, Sophie Hannah and Frieda Hughes, with sessions ranging from fiction, non-fiction, poetry, writing workshops, a pub quiz and even a literary cricket tea.

Programme highlights include:

• Visit the scene of the crime with top crime writers, Sophie Hannah, Janice Hallett and Myfanwy Alexander.

• Get close to the land with Bella Bathurst, author of Field Work and Patrick Laurie, author of Native.

• Enjoy a glass of wine with poet and painter, Frieda Hughes, who will read from, and discuss, her poetry.

• Find out which 12 poems can tell the history of Wales - and which nine foods represent the history of Welsh food.

• Hear from Hope Adams and Alix Nathan as they share the joys and challenges of writing fiction based on history told from a female perspective.

• Meet best-selling non-fiction authors, Horatio Clare and Montgomeryshire’s own Mike Parker.

Budding authors can take advantage of two hands-on lunchtime sessions, one giving advice on how to write for radio, and the other aimed at helping budding food critics master the craft of writing about food.

The Festival’s main venue will be Montgomery Town Hall, with other local venues in the town playing a supporting role, including two bookshops.

Full programme details are available on the Festival’s website: www.montylitfest.com. Tickets go on sale from 4th April at around £8 per session.
