Participating Authors and Bookshops

Welcome to the Foreword Festival! Thank you to everyone who joined us for our very special book fair.

It was fantastic to meet authors of graphic novels, SF and fantasy, comedy, poetry, children’s books, non-fiction and more – and pick up new reads, signed editions and other goodies to take home. Plus we hosted three unique indie publishers, and offered help with getting your own work into print.
