The Free Word centre, a London-based international centre for literature, literacy and free expression, launched its annual FLOW last week. Running until Tuesday 5th October, the festival features internationally acclaimed writers, prize winning authors, clowning and performance poetry.
Free Word prides itself on the bringing together of various creative organisations in a collaborative and dynamic fashion, so it is no surprise that FLOW encompasses the same ethos. ‘Banned Books’, ‘The Human Crossword’, ‘Haikus and Crackers’ and ‘Voices from Panjab’, are just some examples of the variety of talks, workshops and seminars on offer, whilst the Year of Biodiversity, International Translation Day and Children’s Book Week are all celebrated with a series of tie-in events.
