Showcase Event

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.

Our Showcase Event is part of the Southbank’s London Literature Festival and will be held on Friday 25 October 2019.

The event is BSL interpreted.
