WOW 2004's top event had got to be a talk from Noam Chomsky at Liverpool University, the venue was packed out.

2003 was the year for featuring local talent, with young writers contributing and editing this brochure with festival highlights coming from Brian Reade, Kevin Sampson and Clare Shaw.

Poster from Writing on the Wall 2000








Back in the year 2000 the festival was only 5 days long, so producing a brochure was out of the question, this lovely poster did the job just fine.

Even back then we were ahead of our time with our Writing in a Digital Age event.

 

Writing on the Wall 2001


This year WOW looked at the same themes as the year 2000 so Livepool's writing traditions, social justice, digital technology and radical writing, but this year looking at trasatlantic links, women on the edge, asylum seekers and crime. 

With names like Irvine Welsh, Bill Drummond, this festival was one to wow.
