Outside the Lines: Student-led literary festival hopes to embrace diversity within Loughborough community

From 29 May-3 June, Loughborough University master’s students are running ‘Outside the Lines’, a literary festival to celebrate diversity in Loughborough.

The festival is free and will involve several days of creative writing, screenings, readings and many more immersive experiences for all ages. The festival is open to the Loughborough community with events taking place on campus and in Loughborough town centre.

Each year students on the master’s course ‘Creative Writing and the Writing Industries’ undertake a project-based module called ‘Writing in the Community’. During this module, students collectively plan, curate, promote, and hold a literary festival funded and supported by LU Arts.

Outside the Lines festival aims to celebrate eccentricity and non-conformity in a climate that opts to push diversity to the sidelines.

The schedule of events taking place is as follows:

29 May

30 May

31 May

1 June

2 June

3 June
