Festival of Writing 2016

From the 9th-11th of September in York, don't miss the Festival of Writing 2016:


Don't miss out...

This is your last chance to book a place at this year's Festival of Writing in York before bookings close next week. Here's what you'll be missing...

Taking place over three glorious days in September (9th-11th) in York, the 7th Festival of Writing promises to give every writer an opportunity to improve, connect and succeed. Whether you seek to hone your craft in professional writing workshops, meet the perfect agent for your work, or just socialise with other writers, this year’s festival has something for everyone.

Professional insights on your writing

No matter what stage you're at receiving insights from a professional reader will improve your work and perhaps even lead to a request to see the whole manuscript! We've even seen writers earn multiple requests and offers of representation from our 1-to-1 sessions. What would that be like for you? Just imagine.

Crafting, editing, polishing

We've more than fifty workshops covering all elements of crafting quality fiction. They're suitable for writers of all genres, abilities and ambitions. And sometimes it only takes one piece of advice to unlock the skill your writing needs.

Your writing winning awards

You've got to be registered for the festival to enter our life changing competitions. Incidentally, most winners (and runners up) from our Friday night LIVE and Opening Chapter competitions earn the attention of every agent at the event.

"Good luck to all of you coming to the Festival, and if you aren’t shortlisted for any of the competitions don’t be disheartened. I didn’t and I still came away with interest from 8 agents. So much can happen in the 1-on-1s, in the coffee queue, at the bar … the quickening of fate can happen in the most unlikely places. As for the six chosen for the Best Opening Chapter, I’m so looking forward to reading your work. And for one of you (or more), hold on tight, the roller coaster is coming to get you…" Tor Udall, Author.

The best weekend of your writing career

With more than 300+ writers, agents, publishers all staying on the beautiful grounds of York University and enjoying all the same meals and social occasions throughout the weekend, the festival is a brilliant opportunity to meet other writers, make important industry contacts and revel in non-stop conversations on everyone's favourite topic - writing!
