About the organisers

Live Lit is a programme of literary events taking place across South London. We organise two annual festivals in Balham and Dulwich as well as launching the inaugural London edition of Festival America in 2018. We work with a range of writers, venues and partners to create events of all sizes and across all genres of books for adults and children.

We’d like to thank all who attended the Balham Literary Festival, the Dulwich Literary Festival and Festival America in 2018 and 2019. We won’t be running any of these in 2020 for obvious reasons but do keep a look out for updates about next year.
