Reflections on our Writers’ Day

02 December 2019

On Saturday 26 October the Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer saw a very special takeover as writers, authors, and literary professionals descended on Southbank Centre for the first-ever London Literature Festival Writers’ Day presented in partnership with Creative Future.

As we set up for the day, the foyer already busy with people, we got a sense that this was going to be a great day and we were right! Hundreds came. Our audience was a fabulously diverse mix of writers some just starting out some having been writing for years.

The feedback has been incredibly positive and we are delighted to say that the London Literature Festival is very keen to collaborate on the event next year.

This quote from one of winning writers who attended sums it all up:

“I wish I’d met you when I was a kid being told to dim the lights on my own creativity; I’m glad I’ve met you now.”

Below are some photos from captured from the day.
