More than Words 

A celebration of poetry, prose, performance, art, music and fun  


Join our team!

We are seeking a Treasurer and new Trustees as we embark on our way to becoming Clevedon LitFest, a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO).

You can also get involved by joining a sub-committee, offer your skills for our website/IT and help out at our events.

Get in touch to find out more and arrange an informal chat.

We congratulate (and are a little in awe of) the talented winners of our 14-18 years Poetry and Short Story Competitions, who received their prizes at Clevedon Community Bookshop on Saturday.

Tickets (free) are still available for 6 December 7.30pm-9.30pm when we will celebrate the 19+ winners of the Open Poetry and Short Story Competitions






A fantastic turn-out for Tracey Corderoy on Saturday 28 October – childen and adults alike enjoyed hearing how everyone’s favourite doggy duo, Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, saw the error of their ways and turned from robber dogs into bakers! 

A huge thank you for the support we receive from...
