TANYA BRUCE-LOCKHART – Festival Director

The Bridport Literary Festival is now in its 16th year and goes from strength to strength, hosting a programme of events featuring an eclectic cast of writers of fiction and non-fiction as well as emerging talents. The Festival was spawned originally from the international Bridport Prize, founded in 1973, to encourage and reward writers of short stories and poetry.   Tanya’s vision for The Bridport Literary  Festival has always been to welcome writers to  talk on a myriad of subjects  which stimulate, intrigue and entertain audiences who read books, love literature and wish to engage with authors. The Festival takes place annually and has become a firm fixture in the West Dorset calendar for November.
