Ways With Words FestivalDistance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 12.2 miles
Ways With Words is a vibrant 10-day festival, which gives a unique chance for those who read books to meet those who write them. For the first time it was held in 1992 and it was planned to be just a one-off literature festival at Dartington Hall. However, the first festival was a huge success, thus Ways With Words became an annual event.
The mission of the festival is to “promote both the written and the spoken word” and to gather people in spectacular surroundings, where they can share the pleasure and power of language and ideas. What is interesting is that while such genres as fiction, biography, history, art and science are the primary topics at the festival, there is also an emphasis on how to make and live more satisfying lives. You will have an opportunity to discuss these diverse topics with top politicians, journalists and writers who are invited to Ways With Words, to learn something new and to come up with your own ideas, arguments and conclusions.
