Welcome to The Northern YA Literary Festival! Here you’ll find information on our events, news and updates.

We’re busy applying for funding for the next NYALitFest in 2020! 

On the 24th March 2018 the University of Central Lancashire BA in Publishing is proud to have hosted the first ever Northern YA Literary Festival. We were thrilled to work so closely with Waterstones Preston and Lancashire Libraries on what was a fantastic event. We’re passionate about the publishing industry, books and bringing authors to the North of England.
Fans got the unique opportunity to delve into the publishing industry, and to meet critically acclaimed and international best selling authors.
We had another absolutely fantastic Northern YA Literary Festival on 16th March, 2019 and we’re hoping it will continue on to 2020!
