WoWFest 2016!

WoWFest 2016 is all about exploring the future past and present (well, it’s all relative isn’t it, Einstein?) through sci-fi, super heroes, graphic novels, comics and…a Time Machine! What can sci-fi teach us about climate change or our climate of fear, are graphic novels a real literary art-form, and just how long will it take us to get to The Ninth Planet? We’ll be featuring the best of SF classics, voyaging into the wonderful world of Afrofuturism, Girl’s Comics, technologies for creating and living, and, with our regular eclectic travelling companions of star struck festival guests, WoW is tilting to the future with a whole star ship full of new and up and coming writers. Countdown begins now…Lift Off scheduled for May 2016.

To celebrate WoWFest 2016 we’ve launched our brand new website dedicated to Writing on the Wall’s annual Festival. The new festival site, now giving you the first taste of our exciting festival line-up, will contain all you need to know about this year’s festival, guests, venues and tickets, and is the place to be if you want to volunteer or enter our exciting competitions...
