...to Jersey Festival of Words. This five-day literary event promotes a love of the written and spoken word across our community in a variety of styles and settings, as well as welcoming internationally-renowned authors to our beautiful island.
Jersey Festival of Words 2022’s wide-ranging programme will combine visiting celebrity writers from a variety of genres with the showcasing of local talent.
The free schools’ programme sits at the heart of our annual festival and family-friendly children’s presentations and initiatives encourage literacy and creativity across all platforms.
The guiding principle of our festival is to celebrate the pleasure and power of words in all its forms, with something to include people of all ages and backgrounds.
In addition to literary events, our festival includes performance poetry, drama, film, music and visual arts, always with words at its heart.
