The Writers’ Conference is back in March 2020, offering writers across the East Midlands access to leading professionals from across the industry on a dazzling day of inspiration, networking and practical guidance for writers.
Since we launched the conference in 2014, The Writers’ Conference has built a reputation as one of the region’s major literary events, attracting people from all over the country, and this year we are working in partnership with the University of Lincoln.
The event brings established and emerging writers together, providing an invaluable opportunity to make new contacts, learn about getting published, take part in workshops, be guided through the murky waters of funding, and apply to have work read by a nationally-acclaimed literary agent.
“A really great conference… One of the best writer development events I’ve been at.” – Jane Commane, Literary Agent, Nine Arches Press
Activities cover a range of writing disciplines including fiction, poetry, and scriptwriting for screen & theatre, and explore topics and trends on all aspects of writing and publishing, from writing in the digital age to reaching audiences.
Sessions at the 2020 conference will include: The Synopsis Surgery, Social Media for Writers, How to Edit Your Work and Work with an Editor, The Publishing Process and Writing Short Stories – with more to be announced.
