Uncover your inner bookworm this September with the Barking and Dagenham Libraries ReadFest. Based around the theme of Women and Activism, ReadFest has an exciting and expansive programme spanning nearly three weeks’ worth of author talks, classes, poetry workshops and even a collaborative artwork. The events span all genres, from science fiction to graphic novels to teen literature to comedy as well as all manner of poetry, you’d be hard pushed to find something that didn’t fascinate you.
Aspiring authors from Barking and Dagenham mustn’t miss the Pen to Print Creative writing project, The Book Challenge: an initiative that invites unpublished writers to submit a book idea. The authors of the best submissions will receive free mentoring to create a publishable book. Be quick – the closing date for submissions is Friday 28th September.
When? 8th-28th September
