Careers in Literature
Our annual event explores the varied working lives of those in the literature sector, and how to get started in your own career in words. 

Vital Discussions: On Demand – Nuar Alsadir and Elf Lyons: Shaking with Laughter
Poet, psychoanalyst and author of Animal Joy, Nuar Alsadir, is joined by comedian Elf Lyons to discuss silliness, seriousness and spontaneous outbursts.

Vital Discussions: On Demand – Juliet Jacques and Eliza Clark: Variations and Arrangements
Join these two inventive, subversive writers to discuss their Influx Press titles: Variations, the debut short story collection from Juliet Jacques and Boy Parts, Eliza Clark’s debut novel. Witty, original, obsessive, compelling, these books explore gender, expose taboos and tell stories which have gone unheard for too long.

NYPL: Geoff Dyer and Chloé Cooper Jones
Author and RSL Fellow Geoff Dyer is joined by Chloé Cooper Jones to discuss sporting matches and everyday battles; failure and triumph; what it means and what it takes to live life to the full, and when and how to bow out.

Vital Discussions: On Demand – Emma Warren and Kieran Yates – Home Is Where the Dance Is
Emma Warren and Kieran Yates, two writers committed to creating and conserving space, explore the dancefloors and dancehalls, front doors and hallways they have known.

Fancy coming to an event in person? Consider coming to RSL x RVT: An Evening with Damian Barran evening celebrating the author’s touching memoir Maggie & Me‘s 10th anniversary. For one night only, we’ll be taking over the historic Royal Vauxhall Tavern for an evening of readings, discussions and more.
