The London Free The Word! took place on the weekend of 12 and 13 April 2008, at venues around the Southbank.
26 members previewed and reviewed the events, and responded to the festival in a vast range of written forms, from personal blogs, to magazine articles, to films and photographs.
Members also worked with Eastside educational trust, supporting the work of young writers from across the capital.
We launched Free the Blog to draw together our writing about the festival. Read and add your comments to the lively discussion here.
