Welcome to the website for the second Jersey Festival of Words, a five-day literary festival featuring visiting and local writers, poets and performers events, a schools programme, writing workshops, competitions and more.
This year’s festival took place between Wednesday September 28th and Sunday October 2nd, and saw us welcoming internationally renowned writers including Michael Morpurgo, Victoria Hislop, Louis de Bernières, Louise Doughty and many more to the island.
We had a fantastic weekend and hope that you did too. We’ve got a ton of photos to share, many of which we will soon be uploading to the site. You can also take a retrospective glance at our events by reading some of our bloggers’ contributions on our News page. For now, the team extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved in making Jersey Festival of Words 2017 such a resounding success.
Next stop – Jeremy Paxman at the Opera House on Wed 30th November. See you there!
