Spread the Word are part of Bare Lit Festival 2020


As part of Bare Lit 2020, Spread the Word will be presenting how we can support your writing career and opportunities for writers, including our flagship programme the London Writers Awards scheme. 

Bare Lit is an independent, annual festival of stories, bringing together poets, journalists, playwrights and novelists of colour with readings and discussions, performances and debates, networking opportunities and workshops.

This year, Bare Lit 2020 is a free virtual event series – every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 August to 1 September 2020, they’ll be launching exclusive videos and podcasts on their website. On Thursday 20 August, Davina Tijani and Isha Karki from Spread the Word’s London Writers Awards programme (2019-2020), will be talking about their writing journey and the types of support that has helped them develop their writing. Their videos will be live to watch from 10am-10pm on Thursday 20 August. The videos are captioned.

This will be followed up by a live opportunity for writers to chat to Ruth Harrison and Bobby Nayyar from Spread the Word about the London Writers Awards scheme and other opportunities for writers. This is free to attend but spaces are limited and you will need to book to attend.
