"Wigtown treats the authors very well, when you go into the green room and seeing lobsters laid out and all the kind of local produce that Wigtown specialises in, their eyes just light up, it is unlike other book festivals, people come here because it is so idiosyncratic, because you will get events here that you won't get anywhere else and for most of the authors I know, coming to Wigtown is a highlight of the year."
– Adrian Turpin, director of the Wigtown Book Festival.
"We have got 180 events, some of the best writers in Britain coming, we have got people like Joanna Lumley, Jeremy Bowen as well. We have also got food, visual arts, exhibitions, street entertainment"Stuart Kelly, Author:
