Weston-super-Mare’s first literary festival gets underway in just over a month’s time, and there are still free tickets available for most of the events.

Weston Town Council has organised the festival, which starts on February 22 and culminates with World Book Day on March 1.

The event features panel discussions and talks by authors.

There will also be workshops on writing, blogging and creative writing.

Poets and authors will also read excepts from Voices Along The Road, an anthology of poems and fiction exploring the experiences of children and refugees.

A collection of refugee-themed science fiction stories by Bristol and Weston authors will also be read out at the event at Weston Museum on February 25 at 7pm.
