WriteLion is all about promoting your work so we want to hear from authors, poets, reading groups, publishers and particularly our beloved brood on the forum. So if you have something to promote or simply want to vent spleen about the latest bestsellers, get in contact with bookasaurus on the forum or email [email protected]. Remember word lovers, this podcast is whatever YOU make it.    

Please note: The Writing Industries Conference competition deadline has been extended to midnight on Saturday 6 February...   

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
