Welcome to WordFest’s blog

WordFest is Crawley’s first ever festival dedicated to celebrating words and writing in its many forms.

Spearheaded by Waterstone’s County Mall Booksellers and Crawley Library, it is a pilot grassroots week-long programme of events.

Throughout the week we’re having author talks and signings, including appearances by Wilbur Smith, Cathy Brett and Alex Preston. There will also be panel discussions, creative workshops, a quiz night, an open mic night, a bookclub book for the whole town, a bookswap night, a book fair with open mic and roving storytellers, plenty for the kids, and much, much more.

We hope you enjoy the festival! If you have any questions, feel free to leave comments.
