A Literary Festival hosted by Young People for Young People.
About the Festival
Introducing the first ever Channel Island's Young People Literary Festival, hosted by the Students of St Anne's School, Alderney, in partnership with the Alderney Literary Trust.
Celebrating the best young people books and authors, the Festival aims to bring critically acclaimed and bestselling authors to the School, giving Students the chance to meet their favourite authors, and for aspiring writers to learn more about the art of writing a good story. The Students themselves choose and invite their favourite authors, design the Festival posters, banners, and tickets, and create their own adlets for local radio.
