Most Litfests only invite big name authors, TV celebrities or MPs and so on, to give talks or advice to writers.

So, how do you get to showcase your own talents in public?

We designed Stellium Litfest 2018 to give ordinary people in the writing, artistic and creative worlds a golden opportunity to promote their work, creative goods and services, or to network, learn and share techniques with others.

THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU!

Have we forgotten anyone? Then tell us! We welcome people in related marketing, selling, promotional products, along with printers and other publishers, and invite them to join us and to “Spread the Word!”

Stellium Litfest is unique, and an event you’ll never forget.
it’s an annual festival, so don’t miss it!

More details:
If you are able to give a half-hour talk or one-hour workshop to share your knowledge and experience, or are qualified to judge literary entries for our prize-giving session, then contact us by email (details below) with your name, experience and email address. Talk spots are limited and subject matter has to be assessed for value and variety, so apply soon.
