How to get involved:

For Fringe 2020, we are excited to be launching a digital pinboard showcasing the wonderful and inspiring creativity of our local communities. 

The digital showcase opens on Aug 3 2020 and will take place across our ILF Fringe Social media platforms [Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & YouTube]. We want to keep building the showcase and give space to the voices and work of a wide range of local artists, including poets, performers, spoken word artists, illustrators, musicians, animators, directors and scriptwriters. 

Everyone who has a connection with the Yorkshire region is welcome to take part and we’d love to hear from you if you’d like to be featured! Please send an email to fringe@ilkleylitfest.org.uk, attach your work with a brief description. You can also provide your social media handles if you have them.

The 2020 Fringe Digital Showcase is being coordinated by Playful Being, if you have any questions please email fringe@ilkleylitfest.org.uk.

[If you are under the age of 16 and would like to get involved in the 2020 Digital Fringe Showcase, please arrange for a parent/carer to get in touch about your submission.]

Some testimonials from previous Fringe performers:

“Being associated with the fringe has opened other doors for me publicity wise in the lead up to the event and since, so thank you again for inviting me to take part and good luck with any other upcoming projects.”

Sarah Davis, author of Baby Daze

“Just wanted to say on behalf of Night School Poets, thank you for a great experience and an interesting weekend of writing, poetry and creativity. I personally had a great time and I know the others did. From the planning to the execution and my own attendance at a couple of events, the whole thing was great… It was a fantastic and very stress free experience, thank you.”

Gary Cochrane, Night School Poets
