Beverley Literature Festival was established in 2002. It has played host over the years to many of the UK's leading writers and has a significant reputation in the literary world. It is organised by Wordquake, East Riding Library Service’s unique project to promote reading and live literature in the East Riding. Wordquake runs projects across the East Riding to encourage as many people as possible to develop a life-long love of literature. Beverley Literature Festival and Bridlington Poetry Festival are its flagships.
Alongside these two major literature festivals, Wordquake organises the prestigious Larkin & East Riding Poetry Prize competition, supports readers' groups, runs writing workshops and delivers innovative projects with communities across the county, supported by East Riding Libraries.
