This year's Manx Litfest line-up has just been released with best-selling authors Martina Cole and Sally Gardner featuring in the list. The two authors will be joined by fellow authors Cathy Cassidy, Sharon Blackie, Kevin MacNeil, Jon Bounds and Danny Smith, poet Hollie McNish and writer, filmmaker and broadcaster Andrew White.

Following on from the success of Manx LitFest 2015 the organisers have been making fine adjustments in order to make this year's festival even better for both guests and audiences. The schedule for this year's festival includes Schools' Day, Family Day and Writers' Day, the latter being a day full of workshops, panel discussions, talks and agent pitch slots.


With more announcements regarding the festival's line-up expected over the next few months, be sure to be kept up-to-date by following the festival on Twitter and Facebook. More information about Manx Lit Fest 2016 can be found on the festival's website.
