The Literary Conference
An up-to-the-minute conference to make sense of the many possibilities open to writers today, with practical sessions, workshops, case studies, working examples, debates and networking. The discussions will explore the key issues facing writers, such as making and selling ebooks, choosing to self-publish or go via traditional routes, an exploration of the emerging international markets, how technology changes literary forms, social media and other promotional tools.
In addition, the second day will offer a fast-paced presentation hosted by ten of the most exciting and engaged publishers and agents in the country, who will talk about the stories behind the books and what drives their own work in the industry. To top it off, the conference also sees the introduction of our very own "PEN FACTOR", an open panel critique of six fictional projects, submitted by delegates.
Fri 8 June, 9.30am-5.30pm
Sat 9 Jun, 10.00am-6.00pm
Tickets include lunch, drinks & networking.
