WELCOME

The Scone Literary Festival has quickly gained a reputation in its short history, as a Festival that asks the big questions, creates a stimulating yet intimate atmosphere in a gorgeous, informal environment where readers and writers mingle together.

At SLF, we stand for the “love of words” and embrace diversity – of opinion, of literary genre and of the community through the curation of its program, author, topics, and events alike.  We love to tackle contemporary issues and savour some of the treasured questions, such as which book you’d take on a desert island and why?

Authors and attendees love our writers’ festival for just that … “amazed at diversity of audience and of speakers.”  They treasure that atmosphere and thoroughly appreciate our fabulous country hospitality.

``I had a wonderful time! Thanks so much for inviting me. In the 35 years since my first novel was published I have participated in a great number of literary festivals, and I have to say that yours was one of the most enjoyable. Why? The diversity of people - writers and audience - their open-heartedness and generosity; the beautiful setting.``

Dorothy Johnson, 2018
