Shaftesbury Book Festival

The theme 'Reading the Land' is an invitation to share in the passion, experience and insight of our authors as we explore the best of nature writing. In March 2022, we ran our first festival, following two years of planning and uncertainty during the pandemic. Read our post about the event.

"We hope to stimulate positive ways of living with nature, and encourage the audience to share our passion for the landscapes, coasts, and flora and fauna”

The full festival will be back in March 2024. 


Save the date

Join noted nature writer Jane Adams for an inspiring session of Writing the Land on September 16. Spend time walking in the great outdoors, before gathering to write about the beauty of nature with Jane as your guide. Whether you're a seasoned nature writer or just starting out, this is a great opportunity to learn from a professional and connect with nature through words.
