SW11 Literary Festival

I know I said I wasn’t going to post for a while because I’m writing … but I thought you might like to know that the SW11 (London) Literary Festival begins on Monday 8 September and ends on Monday 29 September.

Here’s what Wandsworth Council – the organisers – say about it:

The SW11 Literary Festival 2008 is going to be one of the most exciting so far. Apart from a programme of excellent writers there are a number of creative writing workshops, from poetry to playwriting, to starting a novel. There is also an event devoted entirely to chocolate! The legendary Quiz is back, get a team together and turn up at the Latchmere Pub for a great evening of Literary fun.

Victoria Hislop and Will Self and Ruth Rendell will be appearing, among many others, including the wonderful storyteller Jan Blake who’ll be running a storytelling workshop. And I’m going to do a Speaking of Love talk and reading on Wednesday 24 September @ 7pm at Battersea Library, Lavender Hill, SW11.

Hope to see you there.

    Thanks for your good wishes, Simon.

    And Alex, I tried to watch through the link you sent – but it said it had a ‘malformed’ ! link … never mind. I think I’ll stick to words on paper or screen … .

    I hope I can make it (will just need to find a decent excuse to get out of choir practice!)

    I haven’t quite finished reading Speaking of Love (although the tube ride home should give me time to finish it) but I already love it so much, I am telling everyone to buy it. The local independent book shop in Wood Green recommended it to me and I’m so glad they did.

    Thank you so much, anonymous … and if you do make it on 24 September do introduce yourself. It’ll be a small event because it’s my first novel – so not too many readers/followers yet – but if you’ve managed to finish Speaking of Love by then I’d love to hear what you feel about it.
