Our aim is to offer young readers, writers and illustrators, from the age of 4 to 18, the opportunity to immerse themselves in a world of talks and workshops that will inspire a love of reading, writing and illustration.
The authors and illustrators attending are broad in their backgrounds and styles, but share a desire to inform, enchant and inspire the next generation of literary talent.
Throughout the festival, Arts University Bournemouth will be running a range of illustration and writing workshops in our beautiful woodland campus.
There is a full programme of author and illustrator talks, tailored to all age groups. We are thrilled to be welcoming so many acclaimed authors and illustrators, including ‘Horrible Histories’ writer Martin Brown. All details which can be found via this link below.
In addition, we are excited to be exhibiting the archive of illustrations from Raymond Briggs’ ‘The Snowman’ and ‘The Snowman and the Snow Dog’, courtesy of AUB and its gallery. Within our exhibition space we will be showing the films that resulted from the drawings and offering activities relating to the exhibition.
