NOVEL LONDON'S first annual literary festival will be held at Foyles Bookshop on Saturday 17th August 2019. 


Novel London is a platform for emerging and established novelists. Not only has it become its own social network but it has also provided a wonderful opportunity for creative and professional growth. 


There will be three workshops throughout the day and an evening of readings from new authors.

Novel London has worked with 76 authors to date. It began as a literary night at the Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green. It has since held events at Waterstones in Covent Garden, Angel and Tottenham Court Road.  We also partnered with Writers of The World Unite Festival to promote debut novelists Winnie M. Li and J J Bola at Waterstones in Piccadilly.

If you would like to feature on the panel or read at the evening's event, please enter the competition below.
