About Pegasus

Through its collaborations with schools and pre-schools, Pegasus reaches out to a wide audience and presents established and young authors/illustrators side by side. The Norwegian Festival of Literature is an important meeting place for an adult audience with an interest in literature for children and young people and offers an inspiring literature program.

The name of the Norwegian Festival of Literature’s programme for children and young people is “Pegasus”, chosen through a competition in 2007 when the festival’s extensive investment in children and young people was formally established. The basic idea is that there will be a programme for children and young people throughout the better part of the year through courses, workshops, competitions, and activities, and that these initiatives will culminate during the festival in the form of meetings with authors, award ceremonies, and readings.

In the programme, you can select “Pegasus” to narrow the search into a list of the events for children and young people.

Schools and pre-schools must register, but there will always be a few places allocated for private individuals wishing to attend the Pegasus programme.
