The Bournemouth Literary Festival, which has been held annually for the past five years, has been put on the market by its director, Lillian Avon.
The Festival celebrates a variety of creative writing from around the globe and has featured well-known writers including Man Booker prize-winner, Howard Jacobson. The Bournemouth Literary Festival was understood to be the inspiration behind last year’s launch of the UK Business Books Festival.
The sale also includes Debut Books, a small publisher of guides for novice writers, and an accompanying website.
In an enigmatic statement, Avon said: 'the sale might challenge common perceptions of cultural value'.
We suppose it could be an interesting proposition for someone wanting a low-cost entry into the clubby world of literary publishing.
