Event description

Description

Word on Tour is a celebration of writing talent across the South West region.

From January to September 2018, the region's libraries, from Scilly Isles to Somerset, will play host to some of our finest novelists, nature writers, poets, playwrights, performers, children's authors and one musician. Thanks to funding from Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund, we aim to attract those new to libraries and the wonderful resources they offer. We hope to inspire future live literature events in your community in years to come.
