Writing is hard - and it's usually solitary. The Festival aims to give you three massive wins in the course of one, mind-blowing weekend:
1) We help you improve your writing. We've got workshops on almost everything you can think of and we can virtually guarantee that you'll leave us with your mind expanded and your writing better.
2) We help you meet the industry. Our Festival is alive with literary agents, authors and publishers. If you want to pitch your work direct to an agent, you can. If you want to talk over a beer with a publisher, you can. If you want to pick the brains of professional authors in your genre, then please feel free.
3) We give you an amazing time. Our Festival is famous for its warmth, its inclusiveness, its inspirational quality - and its amazing atmosphere. But don't ask us. Ask the people who've been before. Watch the video here.
