Wordquest Devon is a project of Aune Head Arts, Cyprus Well, Devon Libraries (Devon County Council), and the University of Exeter. It began life as a response to the 'questing' themes of the Cultural Olympiad, and still retains many of these playful and game-playing aspects. The project's live presence began in June 2011 and continues until September 2012.

Around the County (and perhaps beyond) you can pick up copies of our 'Literary Map for Devon' - but you can also explore the online map here for much more information. If you can't find one and you'd like one, please contact us and if they are still available we'll send you one. The project grew out of a love for words and a love for Devon. If you have anything you'd like to add to the project, just go here.
