Isle of Wight Literary Festival

The 2021 Festival will be Digital

Available online from 8th to 10th October – put the dates in your diary!

Because of uncertainties regarding public events and guidance on social distancing this Autumn, the Trustees have decided that a physical event could not provide our loyal supporters with the calibre of festival we work hard to provide.

But we will be bringing another varied and enticing programme to a screen near you!   Sign up for our newsletter for more details as the festival takes shape, or browse our speakers page to see who has already confirmed.  We’ll be updating the list regularly, and announcing the programme as it is finalised.

Last October over 1,300 people from 39 countries joined in online.  If you missed the weekend’s events you can catch up in your own time by clicking here.  A big thanks to our sponsors and supporters who made it possible.

For a good read, and to buy the books authors talked  about last year visit  Blackwell’s Festival Bookshop  It’s a fantastic resource providing not only the book featured but our author’s previous works.

Following on from last years successful digital festival, Steve Ancsell and the award-winning team that brings Cowes Week its very own radio station and our festival radio are extremely busy preparing this year’s festival, recording presentations and interviews for you to enjoy in October.
