Writing East Midlands brings The Writers’ Conference back to Nottingham.
This year we’re delighted to be partnering with Nottingham Trent University. The conference takes place on Saturday 3rd March 2018 at Newton and Arkwright Building, 50 Shakespeare Street, Nottingham, NG1 4FQ
This one day conference gives the East Midlands’ writing community access to leading professionals from the industry. Panel events, debates, seminars, workshops and activities cover a range of writing disciplines including fiction, poetry, social media for writers, working with literature festivals, and explores topics and trends on all aspects of writing and publishing, from, ‘Writing and Voice’, to ‘Working with 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 workshop and be guided through the murky waters of funding. Within the ticket price, there is also the opportunity to apply to have your work read by a nationally-acclaimed literary agent or editor and take part in a meeting to receive feedback on your work.
Tickets are on sale now! Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Tickets include lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Registration is at 9.30am and the conference closes at 5.30pm.
Agent and Editor One-to-Ones application window now open.
As part of The Writers’ Conference we are pleased to offer the opportunity to apply to have your work read by and pitched to a literary agent or editor at one of our Agent or Editor One-to-Ones. These one-to-ones will be taking place throughout the day. You will be able to discuss your work, address any issues you may be having and assess where your work is placed in the current literature and genre market. This is a very rare opportunity to have your work assessed first hand by a leading agent or editor in their field. The application process for the Agent and Editor One to Ones opened on the 1st November 2017 and will close 19th January 2018 at 5.00pm
