If you are a creative writer or would like to become one, or just love reading and would like to know more about the writing process, then book your place at the first Enfield Literary Festival, to be held on 27th January in the refurbished Edmonton Green Library.

Speakers include London writer Catherine Johnson and children's author Alex Woolf.  (Alex was one of the people behind the amazing Palmers Scream project in 2015.)

There will also be a talk about "hyperlocal journalism" - the term describes websites and newspapers that have sprung up across the country to provide reporting about the local areas that is increasingly in short supply in the traditional local press.  Palmers Green Community is, of course, a hyperlocal, as is Bowes and Bounds Connected.

The Literary Festival is the brainchild of Martin Russo, who himself runs a hyperlocal - ENTWO for Enfield.
