Haringey Literature Live [Thursday 12th September]

At Collage Arts we think that the people of Haringey and beyond should have free access to great literary events all year long. So, rather than putting all our energy into a two week festival once a year, where people may be able to attend only a few events, we have decided to programme our events month by month.

We are putting on a series of free evening readings at the wonderful Karamel café. Come along and hear highly entertaining writers reading their work. Browse a selection of poetry and fiction, courtesy of the Big Green Bookshop. Join in our open mic session by reading a poem or micro-story of your own.

The Haringey Literature Festival celebrates books, reading and writing all year long. We hope you will join us!

Thursday September 12th, 7pm for 7.30pm start, free entry: Haringey Literature Festival Fiction Night at Karamel: Tania Hershman and Daniel Jeffreys. Booking recommended! Click on the eflyer below for more info.


Thursday October 3rd, 7pm for 7.30pm start, free entry: Haringey Literature Festival celebrates National Poetry Day at Karamel: Richard Dyer and Naomi Foyle. Booking recommended!

November 2013 – STOP PRESS: Haringey Literature Festival Writing Competition!
Come along to the Open Studios 8, 9, 10 November and be inspired! Write a poem or microstory of up to 200 words in response to something you see in the open studios and send it in by the end of November to Kate Pemberton, [email protected]

We will judge the work in three categories – under 11s, under 18s and over 18s. State which category you are in, and include your name and email address. We will announce the results in December and also online.

Prize is your work on our website and drink and cake for 2 at Karamel.


Next year HLF plans further exciting literary ventures at Karamel, including a range of daytime writing workshops, after school writing clubs, some evening literary talks and interviews, and more readings from HLF poets and short story writers.
