Dorchester Literary FestivalDorchester Literary Festival 2018
17th-21st October

We are already hard at work on year's festival. We will update the website and our Facebook page and Twitter with the latest news in the new year.

Events last approximately one hour and we'll allow enough time in between each one to enable you to go to consecutive events should you wish to do so, although in some cases you will have to change venues. After every event Waterstones will be providing the author's books for you to buy, and there will be the opportunity to meet  authors and have a book signed after each event.

 

What's on in 2018

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….
