Marketing Internship Opportunity with Wakefield Lit Fest

Marketing Internship Opportunity with Wakefield Lit Fest

Wakefield Lit Fest is an emergent festival celebrating reading and writing, established and programmed by Beam since 2012. It runs annually in late September and aims to achieve a balance between quality and participation; learning opportunities and a diverse definition of ‘literature’. The festival has a particular interest in the relationship between the written and performed word and the places we live in, walk through and imagine and in working across artforms.

Wakefield Lit Fest 2015 takes place 18-27 September at a range of venues and public spaces across the city and district.
