Hillingdon Literary Festival returns – celebrating its 5th year, at Brunel from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th October 2019.
Each year the Festival publishes an anthology of local creative writing, showcasing the best of the voices of the London Borough of Hillingdon. This year’s theme is We are Here. The competition is free to enter, and open to anyone with a connection to the Borough. In addition to the chance to see yourself published, the winner receives a £250 grand prize at the anthology launch party. The deadline to submit your poem or short story is Friday 16th August, so get those creatives juices flowing!
Booking details for this year’s festival will be announced soon, but we are delighted to announce that Ben Okri, Diana Evans, Temi Oh, Dorothy Koomson and Daljit Nagra will be among the authors joining the Festival this year. On offer will be the usual mix of writing workshops, industry masterclasses, drinks receptions and performances.
