Second Annual Peckham Literary Festival

17-23 November

A week long extravaganza of free literary events celebrating Peckham's long multi-cultural and multi-talented history. There will be book readings and launches, performances, storytelling, a writer's workshop, open mic poetry evening, a play, a screening of artists' film and video and a "bonus" event in December with John Hegley and Michael Horovitz.

Participants include writers David Boyle, Retta Bowen, Evie Wyld, Emma Darwin, the Neither-Am-I triumvirate, Bridget Whelan, Geoff Andrews and Tibor Fischer; poets, performers and playwrights Jazzman John Clarke, Glen Baxter, Inua, Sally Pomme-Clayton, and Billy Colvil. The artist's film and video screening will take place at Flat Time House, the home of the late great British artist John Latham.
