The Writers’ Conference

Since we first launched the Writing East Midlands Writers’ Conference in 2014, it has a earned a reputation of being one of the major literary events in the region, attracting audiences from across the UK.

This one-day conference gives the East Midlands’ writing community access to leading professionals from the industry.  Panel events, debates and activities cover a range of writing disciplines including fiction, poetry and scriptwriting for screen & theatre, and explores topics and trends on all aspects of writing and publishing, from writing in the digital age to reaching audiences.

Open to all, whether you’re established or emerging writers, The Writers’ Conference is an invaluable opportunity to make new contacts, learn more about getting published, take part in workshops, be guided through the murky waters of arts and literature funding, and apply to have your work read by a nationally-acclaimed literary agent or critiqued by a professional writer.

“I can’t remember the last time I learnt so much in a single day.” – Kristina Adams, writer and conference attendee.

2019 will be a fallow year for the conference, as we explore other opportunities and look at ways of developing the event for the future.
