22-24 March 2024

Our 2024 Festival theme is 'Journeys'.
Why are journeys important and why do people go on them? Some are journeys of discovery, exploration, and conquest; others are journeys of faith. Some journeys are for survival: to escape war, for freedom, to find a better life. All journeys tell us something about the human condition: about who we are, how we got here, and where we are going.

What our guest authors say about the Festival

"One of my favourite festivals - a beautiful location, well-organised, fun, friendly intimate with a fascinating range of speakers who are all treated so well by the festival organisers."
Andrew Lownie

"The organisation was flawless and that's WHY this festival and the last were such a success. It's a great mix of contributors, organisers and audience. There's no festival quite like it."
Simon Scarrow

"I have never been so well looked after at any literary festival - the atmosphere is completely unique, and the islanders are literate, engaging and inspiring. If you haven't been, go! You won't forget it."
Manda Scott

"So jealous of everyone at Alderney Lit Fest this weekend. Last year was one of the best times of my life. One of the best book festivals in the WORLD!!!! If you missed this year, plan to go to the next. I kid you not. Do it."
S J A Turney

I’m full of admiration at the way you have built this up and turned it into such a  special festival - like no other. Long may it thrive. The effort, imagination and hard work that is needed to pull off such a triumph is enormous.
Julia Boyd
