Faclan 2017: Ultima Thule

Wed 25- Sat 28 October

Ultima Thule  25th – 28th October 2017

In mediaeval geographies, Ultima Thule is a place beyond the borders of the known world.  Nowadays, we tell ourselves that there are no borders, that there is no unknown world.  Not any more.  Yet we remain possessed by it: the dark hinterland, the country beyond the horizon, the idea of north, the other.  For writers it’s an endless territory to explore, revisit and reinvent.  Because ultimately we still need these narratives, we still need somewhere that is off the map.

Early Bird Festival Tickets will go on sale in June 2017

The full programme will be announced in the summer. Join our mailing list for updates on Faclan.
