2019 submissions are open

In a changing world, the theme we’ve chosen for our 2019 festival – our tenth edition – is Borderlines. Perhaps you’ve written a story that transcends borders, or a memoir about a life-changing event; you may be blogging about new beginnings or have published a book to help others make a fresh start; you may even have written a novel set on the banks of the Tamar … Whatever it is, we love creativity at the Litfest and can’t wait to see your interpretation.

We’ve already had some fabulous entries and are looking forward to reading through them all.

The closing date is January 25th, so you still have time to let your imagination flow!

Reflections on 2018

The 2018 Penzance LitFest was one of the best ever. It was very well attended, tickets sales topping 1,500, and the varied programme was well received by all those who attended. Details of all the events will remain on the website until we launch the 2019 programme.
