Call for Submissions: Locally Sourced - Cheltenham Literature Festival 2018

Posted on

Are you a Gloucestershire based author looking to showcase your work at one of the largest and most prestigious literature festivals in the world?

We are committed to continuing our ‘Locally Sourced’ series of events at Cheltenham Literature Festival 2018 – celebrating the work of local writers and also the history, culture and landscapes of this beautiful part of England.

We’re therefore inviting writers to submit their writing for possible inclusion in the series.

How to Apply
If your work is already published, please send us a copy of your book. Or if yet to be published, please send some background information alongside a short excerpt from the manuscript. (Please send copies rather than precious originals, as we are unfortunately not able to return materials submitted to us).

Please submit your writing to us by one of the options below:

By post: Nicola Tuxworth, Head of Programming, Cheltenham Festivals, 109-111 Bath Road, Cheltenham, GL53 7LS. Please mark the outside of the package ‘Locally Sourced’.

By email:

The deadline for submissions is Monday 21st May 2018.

If we are interested in pursuing a suggestion, or require further information, we will be in touch as soon as possible after the deadline. If you have not heard from us by the end of June, then please assume that there is regrettably no room in the programme on this occasion. We receive a huge number of submissions each year and inevitably many authors are disappointed, but we do consider every submission.
