Borderlines: Carlisle Book Festival

Borderlines Book Festival aims to establish and sustain an annual celebration of the written and spoken word in Carlisle, Cumbria.

We aim to establish the festival as a focus for literary excellence by attracting high quality speakers, nurturing and showcasing local writing talent; providing new opportunities for local people to experience literature in direct, accessible and dynamic ways; and helping to foster literary skills within the community.

We will strive to promote literacy and a life-long love of reading across all sections and ages of the community.

We would like to create a sense of occasion and identification with the Festival, raising the profile of Carlisle nationally and stimulating economic opportunities for local businesses.
