About Glossop BookFest

Glossop BookFest was the ‘brainchild’ of children’s author/illustrator, Nicola Worswick, who, along with fellow local authors, Mark P. Henderson and Pamela Turton, founded the community project five years ago.

A new team was formed in 2022 when author Andrew Dutton and poet Andy Millican became members and the event, which was initially postponed due to bereavement then delayed by the pandemic, came to realisation in 2023.

Our aim is to provide an inclusive platform for creative writers and illustrators of all ages and abilities, professional and amateur, in Glossopdale and its neighbourhood.
