Literature has always had a home at our award-winning Kendal Mountain Festival, each year the Festival hosts the Boardman Tasker Awards for Mountain Literature. For 2017, the Kendal Mountain team have increased the literature offering with the launch of a full programme of literary events – celebrating the very best landscape, nature and place writing!
The Kendal Mountain Literature Festival will form part of the award-winning Kendal Mountain Film Festival, and the team have extended the programme to include over 20 literary events. They are certain you will be entertained and inspired by the diverse mix of authors coming to the Festival within the ‘Outdoor’ genre.
The literature programme provides a platform for new thinking, adventurous imagination and creativity, which can change perceptions and inspire people. The programme includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art.
