Showcase Event

In partnership with…




Each year we celebrate some of the most talented writers in the UK whose opportunities have been limited due to mental health issues, disability, identity or other social circumstances. This year, the top twelve finalists for the 2017 Creative Future Literary Awards will read their work alongside award-winning poet Lemn Sissay and international best-selling author Kit de Waal.

This year’s Showcase will be held at the Studio Theatre at the iconic Birmingham Central Library, as part of the Birmingham Literature Festival on 11th October 2017.

Below are selected images of 2016’s showcase event, at London’s Southbank Centre.
