BeaconLit 2014 - Writing Festival in Ivinghoe,Buckinghamshire


BeaconLit is in its second year and has already grown from last year's inaugural half-day event into a full day's festival, with author discussion panels, an 'in conversation' feature marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WW1, sessions on writing craft and getting published and hands-on creative writing workshops.  The atmosphere is informal, with plenty of opportunity to chat to authors, buy books and get them signed, browse the stalls and enjoy some refreshments.
 
Participating authors include Hilary Freeman, Caroline Green and Teri Terry (YA Fiction), Stephen Booth, Alison Bruce, Jane Isaac, Anya Lipska and Dave Sivers (Crime Fiction), Mandy Kirby (author/editor of  Love Letters of the Great War) and Rowan Coleman (Women's Fiction).
 
There will also be some attractions for children, with details to be confirmed.
 
BeaconLit 2014 runs from 10am to 5.30pm in the newly extended Brookmead School, Ivinghoe, Buckinghamshire, with its impressive new main hall.  Ample parking is available on Ivinghoe Lawn, less than five minutes' walk away, and disabled parking will be available at the school.
 
Tickets are now on sale, and a full day pass purchased before 17 May will cost just £12 (£4 for young people in full time education) - a saving of more than 11%.  That's amazing value compared to many other literary festivals.  For those only wishing to attend for the morning or afternoon, separate half day passes are also available.
 
Full details, including the programme and profiles of the authors, can be found at the website at www.beaconlit.co.uk.
