This year’s Wolds Words Festival will kick off in just two weeks time, taking place in Louth and the surrounding area between October 15-19.
The East Lindsey District Council-run festival will feature a packed five-day programme of events which will revolve around writing, crafts and performances.
As the name suggests, a big part of the festival is centred around words with literary sessions including ‘Doing Your Homework?’ with Neville Drury, ‘Does Travel Broaden the Literary Mind?’ with Nick David, and ‘How to Find & Catch a Literary Agent’ with Eamonn Griffin.
There will also be a ‘Writing for Teenagers’ workshop run by Kerry Drewery, a ‘Write a Novel That is Impossible to Put Down’ session with Nick Louth, ‘Writing Short Fiction’ with Dan Powell, ‘Erasing the Inner Editor’ with Rennie Parker, and a feedback session with award-winning author Sam Hawksmoor.
In recent years crafts have played a big part in the festival and this year is no different, with workshops including papier-mâché, wet felted flowers, wool spinning, a craft afternoon at M&G Designs and a full day of fabric-based workshops.
Performers and comedians including Nick Cope, Ralph Needham, Adam Bloom and Geoff Whiting will also be performing.
