Shetland Arts’ annual book festival has been running since 2001. Welcoming writers of local, national and international renown, Wordplay features a mix of readings, writing workshops, children’s events, and book signings. Wordplay offers a unique opportunity for readers and writers to meet with their favourite authors, hear them read their work, and answer questions.

This year's festival is curated by Karen Cunningham - tickets available now. Or gain unlimited access to all events* with a Wordcard!

*Does not include The Stray Birds concert at Mareel.
