Event details

The best stories you find are the ones that find you.

Having toured literary festivals across the UK, the Found Fiction writing desk comes to York Festival of Ideas. Visit the desk and add to a short story one line at a time. 

#foundfiction is based on the idea that literature is about a reader taking the outstretched hand of a writer they’ll probably never meet, making a powerful bond through a story they didn’t know they were looking for.

Why not come along to the writing desk and see if you can help co-write a masterpiece?
