Call for Submissions: Locally Sourced - Cheltenham Literature Festival 2020

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 2020 – 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 digital copy of your book. Or if yet to be published, please send some background information alongside a short excerpt from the manuscript.

Please submit your writing to us by emailing literature@cheltenhamfestivals.com

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to accept submissions via the post. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. If you have any questions regarding digital submissions, please get in touch.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 22nd May 2020.

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.
