Writers write; actors read; audience listens; everybody wins. That’s the philosophy behind the Liars’ League, the wildly successful storytelling project that each month sees pro actors bringing to life exciting new short fiction at events in London, Hong Kong, New York City – and now, for one night only, Wakefield!
Seed Fund Event
‘Seed Funded’ events are back for 2016! A series of curated events organised independently by local groups and individuals with a passion for literature, they are denoted by the leaf symbol throughout this year’s programme. An open call for ideas for festival events was made in April, which met with a fantastic response. Selected events have been given financial or other support from the Lit Fest through Arts Council England Grants for the Arts funding.
