Anthony Cartwright, Maria Allen and a couple from the forum pop in for a natter about all things wordy


Wayne Rooney has been sleeping with prostitutes and wants to leave Man.Utd. Why? Because he’s got a five-book deal with Harper Collins and needs something to write about. But we don’t care about him or celebrity books. We care about quality writers which is why Tindal Street authors Maria Allen and Anthony Cartwright have popped in for a natter. Joining them are two up-and-coming writers from the forum who have recently won an award and a bursary.

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?
