What to expect at this event

The 2018 Lincoln Book Festival Launch features as special guest award-winning writer Sally Nicholls, author of THINGS A BRIGHT GIRL CAN DO, who will be talking about reading, writing, inspiration and imagination.

This free-to-attend event is also a chance to explore the excellent work of the charity FIRST STORY, which brings professional writers into secondary schools in low-income communities to foster creativity and communication skills. Students following the programme in a Lincoln school will read from their work.

There will also be the announcement of the winners of our 2018 FLASH FICTION COMPETITION which challenged aspiring writers to submit their own ultra-short stories of just 50 words on the festival’s theme of revolution. First Story will launch its new Wordsmith poetry competition to find a new Lincolnshire laureate!
