Like 1D, this blog has been on a bit of a hiatus since Christmas but I had to come back on here to spread the word about the unmissable The English Pen Modern Literature Festival, happening as part of The Enemies Project this Saturday 2nd April. Thirty UK-based writers will be performing new work dedicated to writers at risk around the world in a mini-festival curated by Steven J Fowler and The Enemies Project for English Pen https://www.englishpen.org/event/modern-literature-festival/
It is taking place from 2pm to 9.30pm at Rich Mix 35-47 Bethnal Green Road E1 6LA. It is free but English Pen ask that people consider becoming members or making a donation to support their work supporting writers facing persecution or difficulty across the world. For more details about it, http://www.theenemiesproject.com/englishpen
I am really excited about this one – the chance to listen to some amazing work and to support some courageous and inspiring writers is going to get me on a train to London this weekend. If you are in or around London on Saturday, why not come along?
