Writing on the Wall 2014

 


Words over bullets, bombast instead of bombs, debating the death of the brave and their legacy – how we went from a Land fit for Heroes to living on Benefits Street. Writing on the Wall presents Shell Shock, a festival to celebrate and commemorate, exploring the centenary of the First World War; those who served, and those, like George Garrett, who wrote.

Writing on the Wall 2013



Writing on the Wall presents a radical programme featuring today's best writers, ranters, artists, thinkers, commentators and activists, designed to challenge, provoke and inspire you to pick up your pen, change, the world and... bake bread. We've got rebels and radicals, port city writers and old-fashioned football fans, lockouts and launches, some nice men and billions of women, flashes of horror, circus performers and curious stories, and word upon word upon word...

All designed to help the pressure drop.

Writing on the Wall 2012



If Liverpool were to set sail on one of the many ships that have left its shores, Below Decks, where Garrett's 'Subterranean Theatre' puts in its nightly shift, is where it would find itself. WoW's annual festival 2012 celebrated all things beneath the water line.

Writing on the Wall 2001

Open publication - Free publishing - More literature

This year WOW looked at the same themes as the year 2000 so Livepool's writing traditions, social justice, digital technology and radical writing, but this year looking at trasatlantic links, women on the edge, asylum seekers and crime. 

With names like Irvine Welsh, Bill Drummond, this festival was one to wow.

Poster from Writing on the Wall 2000








Back in the year 2000 the festival was only 5 days long, so producing a brochure was out of the question, this lovely poster did the job just fine.

Even back then we were ahead of our time with our Writing in a Digital Age event.
