Lemn Sissay Presents Creative Future Literary Awards

Part of London Literature Festival

Hear hidden stories from twelve prize-winning new writers and poets at The Creative Future Literary Awards, presented by poet Lemn Sissay and author Kerry Hudson.

These are the lesser-told stories, diverse voices which reflect the rich array of experience in the UK today. The Creative Future Literary Awards is a national literary competition, organised by leading arts charity Creative Future, which celebrates talented writers.

The awards are open to all writers and poets under-represented in mainstream publishing, including those with mental health issues, disability, neurodiversity, ex-offenders, survivors of abuse, care leavers, and people from the LGBTQ+ and black, minority ethnic and refugee communities.

Sissay and Hudson also read from their own work.
