At last there’s a Literary Festival that allows you to participate instead of just attending.

So how do you showcase your own talents?

Sasha Fenton and Jan Budkowski designed Stellium Litfest 2018 to give ordinary people in the writing, artistic and creative worlds a golden opportunity to promote their work, display their creative goods and services, or to network and connect with useful people and to learn and share techniques.

Sasha is the author of 134 books, with sales of over seven million copies and translations into fifteen languages, and Jan is a designer, editor, writer and publisher. They have been successfully publishing books for the past twenty years, so they have first-hand knowledge of the problems that authors and artists encounter.
