Have you a Faire Tale to share?

The Fairelands have faded back into the Mists, but for many of us, they are still in our minds and imaginations.

Over the course of the Faire, many people were inspired to write stories and poems – and many of those have been shared with us. Over the coming days, we will be sharing those with you,  through this blog, and also adding them to the LitFest area of the site.

But if you have written about the Fairelands, or have been inspired to write by the Faire, there is still time to submit your writing to be included on the website as we build an anthology of Faire writings.

Literary Festival: Fran Wilde’s Reading List – and her request to the Faire Folk!

She also talked about writers whose works she has been enjoying – and for those of us who were slow to scribble down all the names, she agreed to give us a reading list – as long as we told her what we are reading too!

So here is the list that Fran has sent (and three lists from Fairelanders too!):
