We’re extremely excited to announce that this year’s Creative Future Literary Awards Showcase will take place on Thursday 8 September at London’s Southbank Centre as part of Unlimited Festival.
Our annual event showcases a diverse range of talented writers from around the UK. Each of our twelve finalists will read their award-winning contributions alongside readings from our critically acclaimed guest author Michelle Green and best-selling poet and playwright Lemn Sissay, who will host the event.
‘We’re extremely pleased that this year’s showcase has been included in the programme for this year’s Unlimited Festival‘ says CFLA Project Manager Fergus Evans. ‘The Festival, which celebrates the artistic vision and originality of disabled artists, is a perfect fit with our ambitions – to highlight the skills of talented marginalised writers from around the country. The fact that the event will take place in such an iconic building will give the Showcase a real sense of occasion and prestige, which is exactly what our writers deserve .’
