We’ll be happy bunnies this time next week, because once again it’s the start of the SW11 Literary Festival. Starting next Thursday 9th September, Clapham Junction will be home to three weeks of literary events, including novelists, journalists, screenwriters, publishers and poets. Less than ten minutes by train from Waterloo, Wandsworth Council and Waterstones have teamed up with local venues such as Battersea Arts Centre, Northcote Library and Aspace to present this year’s literary festivities.
From book slams to literary discos via writing workshops and celebrity authors such as Will Self, they’ve got it all. There’s a whole host of events which will set you back no more than a measly five pounds, and some are even free. We’re especially excited about seeing Nicola Beauman, founder of one of favourite publishing houses, Persephone Books, speak on Tuesday 14th September, as well as Isabel Lorada‘s talk on Tuesday 21st September about how to get published. Hopefully see you there!
