Belfast Book Festival
How do you access support, advice and connections in the world of books and writing?
Join us for the first Belfast Book Festival FunFair; a social afternoon with and for folks active and interested in books and writing. Resource organisations, journals and funders will be set up in spaces across The Crescent, ready to meet you: come on in and have a chat.
If you’re not quite sure who/what to ask, check in with one of our friendly Book Festival Associates (our resident Agony Aunts and Uncles) who will be on hand to point you in a direction.
