About Monty Lit Fest


Monty Lit Fest is organised by the Montgomeryshire Literary Festival Trust. 

Founded in 2018 by Myfanwy Alexander, Simon Baynes and Amanda Jenner, the Festival has already developed a reputation for attracting top literary talent. 

One of our key aims is to showcase writers who live in, write about and are passionate about Wales and the Welsh Borders and the diverse range of subjects and topics that matter locally. But, more than anything, we want to help connect writers with their readers. 

We are committed to programmes that celebrate a diverse range of writing and appeal to a wide range of audiences. Our summer weekend festival takes place in the historic town of Montgomery. We also plan to run one day winter festivals in a variety of venues across Montgomeryshire to make sure we are reaching as many book-lovers as possible across our region. 

The Festival’s trustees are all volunteers, supported by a wider committee who help to organise and run our events each year. 

Sponsor Us


As a charity we rely on grant funding and sponsorship to support our aim of bringing top literary talent to the region, and to keep our ticket prices as affordable as possible. We are extremely grateful for this support.
