We are extremely excited to announce that the inaugural Dulverton Exmoor Literary Festival will take place in Dulverton on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November 2022.
On the Saturday afternoon you will find some exciting creative writing and illustration workshops in Dulverton Library for families and children aged from 2 to adults.
The Sunday lineup of talks in the Town Hall is coming together beautifully and it won’t be long before the online and printed programmes are available to view here.
There will be six hour-long talks taking place throughout the day in the main hall, with the ground level entrance hall used for post-talk book signing and a popup bookshop provided by Waterstones Barnstaple. The talks will all be by bestselling authors and writers suitable for all members of the family – on a variety of topics such as politics and drama; sport; psychology; writing for children; historical, romantic and crime fiction; food and wine.
The Sunday programme includes time for a lunch break, giving visitors the time to pop out and enjoy a quick bite at one of Dulverton’s excellent eateries. Or take the opportunity to have a 15 minute yoga meditation therapy session in the Main Hall with Colin Dunsmuir, a leading voice in the global yoga community and a yoga teacher and writer for over 25 years!
The winner and runners up of the Dulverton Exmoor Literary Festival Writing Competition will be announced on the Sunday, with the winning entry read out by the competition’s judge. historical fiction author Kate Lord Brown. The competition will be open to all children from Reception to Year Six, more details to follow.
