Monty Lit Fest is coming to Montgomery on June 12 to 14 this year and to celebrate the event, they are running a competition for children, under the age of 12, to design a bookmark illustrating their love of books.
The deadline for entries is March 2 and designs should feature the child’s own work. There will be one lucky winner who will receive a goody bag of prizes, plus several runners-up; the winning design will be reproduced as a printed bookmark and used to promote the Literary Festival.
Full details of the bookmark competition can be obtained by emailing email@example.com
New Chair of the Monty Lit Fest committee, Sarah Morris, says, “The start of a lifetime’s love for books often happens in primary school. With today’s youngsters being able to access stories from a plethora of sources, we are intrigued to discover what it is about books that still holds an enduring place in the hearts of our children.”
The Montgomeryshire Literary Festival is run by the Montgomeryshire Literary Festival Trust. It aims to celebrate writing in Wales and the Welsh borders, with an annual festival circulating through key locations in Montgomeryshire. The inaugural 2018 Festival took place at Bodfach Hall, Llanfyllin and moved to Gregynog Hall, Tregynon in 2019. The 2020 Festival will take place from 12 to 14 June in Montgomery, with main events staged in the Town Hall and a variety of alternative events hosted in smaller venues around the town.
