Inaugural Enfield Literary Festival Hailed A Success

29th January, Enfield, London Local and internationally acclaimed writers led the literary way this weekend at the first ever Enfield Literary Festival.

Hackney-born author and screenwriter, Catherine Johnson, lined up alongside the likes of children’s author Alex Woolf from Palmers Green. They were just two of a plethora of writers giving an insight in to their world and encouraging attendees to celebrate the wealth of local literary talent.

The festival gave school children and aspiring authors a chance to hone their writing skills and ask questions during a series of talks and workshops. It is the brainchild of Martin Russo, founder and editor of Entwo for Enfield, a new website rejoicing in all that is cultural in north London.
