Untitled to hold second salon showcasing underrepresented writers

Untitled, a platform for new authors, is running another salon in July where 10 underrepresented writers will share their work in front of an audience.

Founders Ollie Charles and Nicola Lampard are on the lookout for writers to take part in the 18th July event, held at the Curtain Hotel in London.

Charles said: “We hope to create a positive and safe space for writers who aren’t represented in the mainstream regularly - writers who are BAME, LGBTQ+, working class, physically disabled, have mental health issues and anyone else who isn’t afforded opportunities because of who they are or their situation.”

In a new initiative, Untitled is also looking for underrepresented visual artists who would like their work on the covers of the event programmes.

Lampard said: “We are so excited to be able to extend our scope. The response to Untitled has been fantastic from writers, readers, family, friends and the industry and we are excited to be able to bring that enthusiasm to visual artists as well, hopefully giving them space to create something new that people will pay attention to.”

The team held their first salon in April and plan on holding another this October. Free tickets for the July event will be available from 6th June on the Untitled website.
