Literature Festival at Sea

With a seven-day program of literary events, talks and workshops, the Literature
Festival at Sea will celebrate the written word in all its wonderful variety. Returning
for its second year, the festival is run in partnership with The Cheltenham
Literature Festival and The Times and The Sunday Times.

We will be joined on board by some of the worlds’ best novelists, historians,
poets, and critics including bestselling authors Ian Rankin, Kate Mosse,
Alexander McCall Smith, Prue Leith, Rachel Joyce, Joanne Harris, Alan Johnson and Mark Billingham; poet and broadcaster Pam Ayres; writer and producer Armando Iannucci; editor and dramaturge Greg Mosse; and your favorite
Times journalists will be coming along too.

Throughout the week we will hear some of our literary greats in conversation
about their lives and work and get the chance to meet them at intimate author
signings. Sailing in December 2020, we get into the festive spirit with readings
celebrating the best Christmas scenes in literature from Rudyard Kipling’s
Christmas in India to P.G. Wodehouse’s lament about Christmas on a diet.

That’s not all! We will review the biggest news stories of the year with our Times
columnists and analyze the truth behind the headlines — and there will be a
program of workshops and master-classes for budding writers. Hear our literary
editors and critics pick their best books of the year or have a reading list tailor
made for you by our resident bibliotherapists. There will be bookish delights around every corner so join us for what promises to be an incredible journey.
