WAY ON HYE
The town of Hay on Wye with its many bookshops and famous literary festival is a favourite spot for readers and writers alike.
But we're faeries, so our own special mini literary festival within the festival is called Way on Hye - see what we did there?!
Inside the large arena you will find a group of dedicated faery and fantasy writers all keen to show you their work and discuss their ideas. There is seating and the authors take it in turn to read from their works. Please see the nearby blackboard for details of times and authors. The atmosphere at the reading circle is lovely and caters for children of all ages plus adults.
Previous years have seen talks by Mary Curtis, author of 'The Goldfish that Jumped,' Dan Baines, infamous creator of The Mummified Fairy and F.R Maher author of the fantasy thriller epic of the dark faeries, 'The Last Changeling,' and her non-fiction book, 'The Secret of the Cottingley Fairies.'
