A farewell from us

Dear Friends

Ways With Words, like many businesses and organisations in the last two and a half years, has faced incredibly difficult challenges.

Through the first year of Covid we were unable to run any festivals, and as events were allowed to run again we were only able to host limited audiences. From there the country has moved into an economic situation where households are facing difficult financial choices. We know from other colleagues and literary festivals that most literary events have seen smaller audiences and lower revenue.

As a small team, we have worked incredibly hard to keep Ways With Words going since 2020 but sadly we are no longer currently viable and we have had to make the decision to cease running events.

We will cherish the many happy memories from all our festivals over the years and we thank you for all your support.

Leah and Bryony, who have been running Ways With Words in recent times, are hoping to continue running literary events. They are currently researching how this might work. If you would like to be notified about any future events they plan, please email leahvarnell@gmail.com so they can keep in touch with you. 

If you have any other queries please email admin@wayswithwords.co.uk. We cannot say how long it will take to reply but we will respond to every email.

With best wishes,

The Ways With Words Team
