The Alternative Book Fair London is a week of publishing and author events coinciding with the end of London Book Fair to bring the world of publishing and literature to a wider audience especially those looking to enter publishing either as a future publisher or author.

The Alternative Book Fair is designed to connect big name established and up and coming authors with readers and aspiring writers of all different backgrounds leaving no one excluded. There will be a series of headline events with award winning crime writer Ajay Chowdhury speaking about his Kamil Rahman series and his new book The Spy; authors Chloe Ashby Kate Maxwell and Rose Diell discussing the themes of womanhood and motherhood in their writing; Marieke Bigg and Phoebe McIntosh discussing how writing can boldly tackle societal issues; and panels including Mira Marcinów Musih Tedji Xaviere YA author Emma Brand graphic novelist Sarah Airriess and more. To make the event possible each author and panellist has waived their fee as part of the Alternative Book Fair’s commitment to bring the world of publishing to more people in a way that everyone can access and promote writing at a grassroots level.
