Little Star Writing Children's Literature Festival

Without a doubt, the LSW Festival is the highlight of the year for the Little Star Writers, their parents and teachers, and us! As well as having the opportunity to meet some of the biggest children's authors of the year, ask questions and get books signed, we also host an award ceremony for the Little Star Writers of the Year and do everything we can to help celebrate their hard work and talent. To be among the first to hear about our next LSW Festival, just send us an email and we'll add you to our mailing list.

I thought the festival was amazing! I really liked the book signing. Abi Elphinstone was really inspiring, Guy Bass was really funny, and Robin Stevens was really interesting. It had something there for everyone.

Thank you for an amazing day, children (and adults) truly inspired by the authors. A fantastic and fun filled day.
— Jo R, Parent
Antonio and his friend had a blast! Even I couldn’t get my eyes off the authors’ words of wisdom. You never disappoint us on everything you organise.
— Almudena, Parent
Thank you for such a fabulous afternoon. George read all the way home. Two little boys (and mums) truly inspired. Thank you LSW!
— Sarah H, Parent
Thank you very much for organizing the LSW festival. Jadwiga went with her father but later that evening we had one hour of full story telling about the whole afternoon. It was magical for her to meet all three authors and find out about their journey how they become writers.
— Elzbieta G, Parent
Thanks so much for a brilliant event yesterday - the children (and my husband) had a really great time. It’s just so wonderful for the children to meet such inspirational authors and particularly powerful for them to hear their stories outside of the classroom setting. Thank you!
— Charlotte B, Parent
