Streatham Literature Festival

Streatham Literature Festival will be back with us very soon on 10 October 2021, with more stories to tell and authors to meet in person. We can’t wait to welcome you to this year’s events; whether you were in our first audience in 2020 and returning this year, or you are a newcomer. 

We’ve got local authors and big names, creative writing workshops and a children’s short story writing competition, comedy, poetry and spoken word. As well as opportunities to meet the authors, you can get bespoke recommendations from booksellers and librarians to help you choose the perfect book for you, or your child. Streatham Literature Festival has something for everyone.

We’ve listed everything on our programme for you to scroll through and learn a little bit more. Booking is simple – just click on the links provided. We’ve also added a few other links to interesting bits ‘n’ pieces about the authors, and their publications or podcasts.

We could not produce the festival without the help of our volunteers. If you would like to be part of the team curating and running the literature festival next year, please sign up via our new Festival Volunteers page, or contact Hannah, Literature Festival Coordinator at
