Revolution! WoWFest 2017
01 May - 31 May
Across Liverpool
Tickets Available Here

Organised by: WoWFest »

Established in 2000, Writing on the Wall is part of the National Arts Portfolio and is the longest standing literature festival in Liverpool and is an important part of the cultural landscape of the North West. Writing on the Wall runs for the whole of May and typically culminates around 35 events. WoW Fest hosts local, national and international writers, performers, artists and commentators whose work provokes controversy and debate. They are unique in that we provide the opportunity to both high profile national and international guests as well as local talent and communities to promote and share their own writing, art and talent. Writing on the Wall celebrates writing in all its forms including literature, creative writing, journalism and non-fiction, poetry, songwriting, and storytelling.

WoWFest 2017 will explore revolutions in literature and art, thought, ideas and practice; from our working lives through to the environment, Black Lives Matter, populism and other new movements and technologies and their impact on our daily social and working lives and relationships. WoWFest is Liverpool’s radical writing festival celebrating diversity, tolerance, story-telling and humour through controversy, inquiry and debate. For seventeen years, we have been bringing to Liverpool a vibrant mix of top national and international guests, and giving a platform to local artists to promote and share their writing, art and talent.
