Welcome to Blandford Forum's first-ever literary festival!


Born from the minds of a few avid readers back in 2019, we successfully raised donations and various offers of sponsorship within just a few weeks. 


Blandford is home to a plethora of talent and it became our mission to make that talent known; introducing the town to both new and existing writers and encouraging creativity within the community.


Our first festival launched in November 2019 and hosted a variety of events including workshops, readings and competitions for all to enjoy.

The aim for 2020 is to build upon the success we found in 2019, bringing more exciting, interactive and educational events to our audience.

Due to the pandemic, we have not been able to action things the way we had intended. However, we will endevour to keep the spirit of the festival alive online this year over on our facebook page. 

We will be posting author updates, writing prompts, readings, interviews, competitions and more! So be sure to stay tuned.


If you are an author, publisher, editor or illustrator who would like to host a workshop, signing or talk, or perhaps you are a group or individual that would like to offer your assistance in other ways, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Blandford Literary Festival is all about teamwork and community spirit, we are so thankful for the connections and friendships made last year and are looking forward to the future.
