Welcome to the North London Literary Festival’s homepage.
Located at Middlesex University and run by its very own students, the festival is a great chance for writers to showcase their work, and for readers to enjoy talks by authors about their craft.
This year, we’re proud to announce that Scottish poet and playwright, Carol Ann Duffy will be joining us as one of the main speakers at the literary festival.
Poets Shanta Acharya, Fawzi Karim and Anthony Howell are also more of the great writers that will be attending our event to do a reading of their work.
Due to its popularity over the last few years, the festival welcomes back speed-pitching. Much like speed dating, this activity allows all visitors at the festival to pitch their idea to top literary agents and receive feedback on their work in regard to the current publishing market.
These are just a few of the things you have to look forward to at the festival, as we’ll also have workshops involving different types of writing and writing competitions that anyone can take part in.
So save these dates in your diaries: 23rd, 24th, 25th March 2015 and we look forward to seeing you there!
