Young Writer of the Year Award

Freeflow festival

Join our Freeflow festival

To celebrate the Young Writer of the Year Award, we're creating a day of events and workshops here on campus, bringing together inspirational thinkers, authors, journalists and performers to share what’s fresh, controversial and relevant today. Our aim is to explore and provoke: in short, to celebrate the vibrancy of language.

We hope you can join us for a fun, varied and stimulating day on Wednesday 29th November. All events are FREE but booking is required.
