Outreach in Schools

The Stratford Literary Festival is a registered charity with aims to encourage a love of books and writing, and to use books and writing to educate, improve well-being and increase the life skills that reading and writing can bring.

Good literacy is the bedrock of education and the springboard to positive well-being and life outcomes - and we're right on the starting blocks!

We just love spreading the word. If you feel you can support us please email us here.
