Jersey Festival of Words 2018 will take place between Sept 26 and Sept 30. Our first event, ‘Gold from the Stone’ with poet LEMN SISSAY, has just been announced, with many more to be revealed in the coming weeks.
Last year we were thrilled to welcome a host of writers including Professor Richard Dawkins, Dame Jenni Murray and Alexander McCall Smith to the island. Also featuring were acclaimed novelists John Boyne, Jane Menczer and Jem Lester, food-blogging sensation Ella Mills and Grazia agony aunt and writer Daisy Buchanan, while young readers thrilled to fabulous shows and readings from a range of authors including Clare Balding, Jason Rohan and Children’s Laureate Lauren Child.
Our thanks to all our featured writers, and to all those that turned out to make the festival such a resounding success. We’re still buzzing from what was an incredible experience, and are delighted to share our round-up video with you, featuring clips and interviews from this year’s event.
