CFWA 2019 Showcase Event

01 September 2019

We’re super excited to announce this year’s CFWA Showcase Event will be at the Southbank Centre as part of London Literature Festival, on Friday 25 October, 7pm.

Hear lesser-told stories from writers selected for the Creative Future Writers’ Award at an event hosted by author Kerry Hudson, with poet Anthony Anaxagorou.

This year’s Creative Future Writers’ Award is on the subject of ‘home’. At this event, hear 12 shortlisted writers read their stories and poems on what home means within the rich array of experiences in the UK today.

All winning entries are published in the anthology Home, alongside work from Kerry Hudson, Anthony Anaxagorou and the guest author for 2019, Mahsuda Snaith.

The event is BSL interpreted.

New for 2019, we’re also partnering with the London Literature Festival to present a FREE Writers’ Day event.

Find out about prizes, initiatives and schemes that can advance your writing career in a day of free short talks, advice sessions with agents and networking opportunities.

London Literature Festival Writers’ Day has a particular focus on providing opportunities for literary voices from under-represented groups, supporting writers to reach new audiences and develop their careers.

The talks take place in Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer across the day and consist of 15-minute presentations from artists, publishers and organisations.
