North London Literary Festival by Heather Wells


    Several prize-winning authors and publishers will be in Hendon on the 26th and 27th March to attend a free two-day literary festival held at Middlesex University. The festival is hoping to engage lovers of literature in the local community with authors such as Andrew Simms and Lucy Caldwell with Faber in attendance. James Herbert OBE was due to appear at the festival, but having suddenly passed away, Middlesex University is to pay tribute to his life and work on the evening of Wednesday 27th.

    Faber will give a talk on ‘how to get published’ with invaluable advise on the best way of doing this in todays market. There will also be a discussion entitled the ‘Small Publishing Forum’, ever-needed when trying to find your place in the fast changing world of print.

    As well as this there will be a vibrant poetry slam – described as ‘a verbal battle between poets’. All this and more is on offer at this years North London Literary Festival.

    The event is organised by students of the University and will be situated on the campus at  Middlesex University, The Burroughs, Hendon, NW4 4BT.
