Expo

We're extending a warm invitation to regional writers, small presses, editors—to everyone in our region invested in literary creativity. Come take part in the transformation of London and region’s largest book fair. Registration is now open below! 

In 2017, London’s biggest annual bookselling event—the Book Fair that has long been a feature of Words—is undergoing an expansion from a fair to the Souwesto Book Exposition.

What’s different now?  Size, buzz, and energy.

Whereas the Book Fair established itself over the years as a place to sell and buy books, the Souwesto Book Exposition will offer much more. We are adding panel discussions and workshops on writing and publishing issues to make the Souwesto Book Exposition an interactive and engaging event for not only readers, but for all people interested in writing and publishing as well.

Our prestigious location in Museum London puts the Expo directly on-site at the Words main event location, which draws in visitors from all over our region.  Our exhibitors will have the entire Community Gallery, with its panoramic views overlooking the Thames River.  Our panel and workshop area will be located directly in the gallery to maximize the crowd flow-through for our exhibitors.

Who can take part? The Souwesto Book Exposition is an inclusive event for exhibitors, so we welcome authors of all genres, all audiences, poetry, graphic novels, as well as associated literary persons and businesses such as small presses, editors, illustrators. All are invited. So come out and sell, socialize, learn, and have fun!
