The Literary London Society Annual Conference: Cancelled
In light of the rapidly escalating situation concerning the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, and domestic and international travel restrictions, the Literary London Society Executive Committee and Conference Organising Committee have regretfully concluded that it is no longer practical or ethical to organise and hold the LLS annual conference, scheduled to take place at the London College of Fashion (LCF), 9-10 July 2020.
Our decision to cancel the conference is based primarily on prioritising the well-being of organisers, attendees and staff supporting us at LCF. We are particularly mindful of the fact that the vulnerable, including those with underlying conditions and visible or invisible disabilities, would unlikely be able to attend the conference were it to be held.
We are currently in discussion with LCF regarding postponing the conference and holding it in the summer of 2021. We are also considering devising alternative online activities for delegates over the conference period this July. We will provide updates as soon as we can.
