In Other Words Festival

Writing on the Wall
to help curate Liverpool City Council’s
‘In Other Words’ Literary Festival

Writing on the Wall have been invited to help curate the ‘In Other Words’ Festival, which will celebrate the reopening of the newly refurbished Central Library.

The festival, celebrating the written and spoken word will launch on Tuesday 23 April to coincide with World Book Night and will run until Sunday 19 May which marks the end of National Children’s Book Week.

‘We are delighted to have been asked to help curate this festival and be associated with the reopening of the Central Library. We are already developing a programme featuring the best of Liverpool writing and work with the City Council to ensure communities across the city are engaged and represented in what should be a fabulous month.’

The annual Writing on the Wall Festival that traditionally runs throughout May will still take place, with events happening both within and outside of the ‘In Other Words’ Festival. This spring promises to bring a treat for all fans of writing and literature in Liverpool.
Arts organisations, businesses, community groups and schools are being called upon to get involved and support the festival. Anyone wishing to propose ideas for events can submit them by clicking here for the events form or going to and sending their idea in to the City Council by Monday 25 February.
