MK LITFEST set up in 2017 to promote and celebrate all things literary, bookish or wordy.

The Lit Fest Steering Group brings together arts and education professionals and enthusiasts who share a love of books, words, writing, speaking and thinking.  We are a small team with big ambitions, and we are especially grateful to our wonderful volunteers who help us get the show on the road.

After a triumphant debut in 2017 – with Lynton Kwesi Johnson, Michael Rosen and much more – we returned in 2018 with an even more ambitious programme, working with new Festival partners and venues to bring a cornucopia of the finest contemporary writing to the city.

We’re now putting together a packed programme of events with something for everyone: novelists, biographers, storytellers, journalists, and poets. So put down your book, uncuddle your Kindle and join us for MK Lit Fest 2019.
