Literary festival Meet me at the Lighthouse

Meet me at the Lighthouse (MMATL) is a literary festival on the most northern Dutch island, Schiermonnikoog. It brings together writers, poets, thinkers and audiences in a programme with recitals, discussions, night walks and reading clubs. In Meet me at the Lighthouse, issues such as nature, ecology, tourism and identity form a common theme, making the island of Schiermonnikoog the decor, the inspiration and the topic of conversation.

The literary festival will be held this year from 9 to 12 November 2023 on various special locations on the island. Author and journalist Adriaan van Dis, philosopher and writer Eva Meijer, poet Myron Hamming and writer and gardener Mariken Heitman are the first major names on the programme.

LIT-UP also forms a part of the programme with performances by international authors from partner regions and various activities for professionals.
