Writing a novel? Struggling to edit your manuscript? Interested in developing a plot line? Eager to find an agent or publisher?
The Virtual Writers’ Weekend is for writers working at all levels and in every genre who want to improve their writing, get their manuscript published, and network with agents, published authors, and other writers.
The Virtual Writers’ Weekend is not just another Zoom call.
It’s so much more.
We have invested in easy-to-use virtual-conference and Braindate software to create a fully interactive programme, where you can:
- Discuss your writing in workshops
- Ask questions after keynotes, talks and readings, and
- Receive feedback one-to-one with literary agents and in small-group peer-to-peer feedback Writers’ Circles
- Connect with others to discuss topics that you feel passionate about in virtual Braindates
Also, attendees can read to an international audience at the Open Mics and submit your first 1000 words for a Pitching Panel. Writers will serve as moderators in every group room to curate questions and encourage engagement and our friendly Helpdesk will be open all weekend to answer your questions and assist you. Our goal is to provide inspiration, education and interaction to help you kickstart your writing after a difficult Spring, and achieve your writing goals.
Packages are designed to allow you to engage as much as you like, from simply viewing selected sessions, to fully participating in everything the weekend has to offer. You can choose to purchase up to five one-to-one appointments with literary agents, commissioning editors and author mentors, but they are not included in the package, providing flexibility with your booking.
