The Writers’ Conference 2017
We had a fascinating, challenging and inspiring conference this year. Thank you to all our speakers and to everyone who attended. We hope you enjoyed it.
“A unique, inspiring, vitally necessary event”
Our programme this year was filled once more with inspiring workshops and stimulating panels, and of course opportunities to network, chat and find out about what’s happening in the writing and publishing worlds. Speakers included Alison Moore, Nikesh Shukla, Kerry Young, R.A. Villaneuva, Maurice Riordan and many others.
Have a look at our Storify story ‘A Day in the Life of #wemconf2017’.
Our one-day conference gives the East Midlands’ writing community access to leading professionals from the industry. Panel events, debates, seminars and activities cover a range of writing disciplines including fiction, crime writing, poetry and scriptwriting for screen & theatre, and explores topics and trends on all aspects of writing and publishing, from, ‘Writing the Personal and the Political’, ‘Promoting your Work as a Writer’ to pitching your work to an agent. Whether you’re an established or emerging writer, The Writers’ Conference is an invaluable opportunity for you to make new contacts, learn more about getting published, take part in workshops, be guided through the murky waters of funding, and apply to have your work read by a nationally-acclaimed literary agent or critiqued by a professional writer.
