Writers, poets, spoken word performers, theatre groups, creative collaborators, workshop leaders – Scarborough Literature Festival wants you!

In 2013, Scarborough Literature Festival will be launching its own Fringe Festival - a programme of free events showcasing talented writers and performers from the region.

Submit an application and you could present a fringe event and get £50 towards it.

Organisers will be looking for ideas that are inspired by words whether in the form of readings, new plays, comedy, music, visual art, film or something completely different.

Events will take place in libraries across Scarborough Borough and Ryedale over the Festival’s Long Weekend, 11 - 14 April 2013.

Suggestions for Fringe events elsewhere are also welcome. Karen Atkinson, Director of Scarborough Literature Festival, said: “The Fringe Festival is an exciting new departure for Scarborough Literature Festival – it’s fresh and it’s free.

“So, all you talented writers and performers out there, we need you to make Scarborough Literature Festival come alive!”

Application forms and guidance notes can now be obtained from local libraries or downloaded from www.scarboroughliteraturefestival.co.uk

The closing date for these submissions is Monday 5 November.

Scarborough Literature Festival is supported by North Yorkshire County Council and Arts Council England.
