Literary Festival 2018

2018 marks the 22nd running of the Mere Literary Festival, and will take place on 8th to 14th October. We will once again have a great mix of literary-related speakers and events.

This year's literary competition takes the form of a timed flash fiction contest, where entrants have one week to write an original story of 350 words or less. Each story also has to contain a specific phrase, to be announced on this website on 14th September 2018.
