My disrupted internet access and the forthcoming house move delayed me putting this up. The conference of Festivals covered much of the ground one would expect. There was the usual sharing of recent project ideas and much discussion of destructive cuts to literature funding across the globe, with representatives farthest stretched to Chile in the West and the Ukraine in the East. A lot of  Balkan Festivals too. The Text Festival was the only overtly non-literature festival.

Pleased to see Eduard Escoffet (Barcelona) again.
