The Brixton BookJam is an eclectic gathering for people who are passionate about books and the written word. It’s a mix of readings, talks and panels, chatting and socialising. From people who love to read through to A-list authors, ghost writers, erudite editors, self-effacing self-publishers and aspiring scribes, everyone is welcome and many of them will be speaking.
The next BookJam will be happening at the Hootananny on the 3rd of March. We will be featuring three writers all the way from Japan – as well as the best of local literary talent.
Janklow & Nesbit, a leading literary and media agency, working with Brixton BookJam are searching for the next big debut author.
We have now announced the runners up and winner of this competition.
The winner is Anna Mazzola for her submission Crossing the Line – she gets a one-to-one consultation with Literary agent Hellie Ogden.
Jill Moffat (The Backpacker) and Sally Harris (Can You Smell The Roses?) are also both highly commended for their submissions.
A video with some footage of previous events will be out soon…. Past readers have included: Adam Mars-Jones, Alex Wheatle, Natasha Soobramanien, Roz Morris, Jeff Noon, Martin Millar, Geoff Dyer, Kate Harrad, Christopher Russel, Andrew Mueller, Sharmila Chauhan, Vicky Grut, Dave McGowan, Helen Smith, Jim Bob, Courttia Newland and Rhodri Marsden to name but a few.
