Our inaugural festival was a great success! We’re planning some events for the rest of 2023 and into 2024, including a short story competition, workshops and more… For now though, we want to take a moment to say thank you to everybody involved. To our sponsors, our volunteers, the authors and facilitators who took part and of course everybody who came along and enjoyed the more than 20 events we put together!
