Shipping Lines Liverpool Literary Festival

Written by jen, 23rd September 2008

Welcome to the first blog post for the Shipping Lines Liverpool Literary Festival. The programme has been confirmed and we have an exciting line-up of events and writers.

Philip Pullman, Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy to name but a few of the writers coming from across the UK and abroad to speak at the festival. For a full list of writers please see our website ...

As well as writer readings, panel discussions, lectures and workshops, we also have a variety of community events, and a family programme as part of the festival, to engage, entertain and encourage our young readers. All our family events are free to make it easier for families to attend the festival. We have a number of schools' events also, so please do get in touch to enquire about any remaining slots.

Our website has a full programme of events, plus a complete list of writers with a brief biography. Please visit for all information about the festival, including booking tickets, venues, and if you are not local to the North West, some information about visiting Liverpool.

We will be featuring specific events in future posts, so keep checking in for more information about the festival. Tickets have already been sold which is terrific, and events such as Philip Pullman and Howard Jacobson are going fast. We have ticket discounts available such as buy 5 for the price of 4, so take advantage of booking early. We also have discounts for The Reader Magazine subscribers. Please get in touch for details.

Please get in touch if you would like more information by emailing me at events<at>
