Green Light For Shaftesbury’s Nature Writing Festival

Shaftesbury’s first-ever book festival – a weekend event themed around nature and wildlife writing – is going ahead.

Planning for ‘Reading the Land’ commenced in November 2019 but the pandemic has meant postponement and rescheduling. A number of respected local and national nature writers have agreed to attend the event between 11th and 13th of March.
