Our Quest is to get people writing, walking and experiencing Devon through words. We’re mapping all the places where words about Devon have been written –– or could be. 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.
Wordquest Devon is an opportunity for people to immerse themselves in Devon’s literature while exploring the county’s dramatic landscapes. To keep up to date with latest news and events you can signup to our newsletter and visit our events page to see how you can participate in Wordquest Devon.
