Established in 2000, Writing on the Wall is one of Arts Council England's National Arts Portfolio Organisations and is the longest standing writing festival in Liverpool. Writing on the Wall will be delivering its 18th festival, which will run for the whole of May. WoWFest 2017 hosts local, national and international writers, performers, artists and commentators whose work provokes controversy and debate. We are unique in that we provide the opportunity for both high-profile national and international guests, as well as local talent and communities to promote and share their own writing, art and talent. Writing on the Wall celebrates writing in all its forms including literature, creative writing, journalism and non-fiction, poetry, songwriting and storytelling.
