Which to choose?

If you want to immerse yourself in discussions, share and receive feedback on your writing, interact with other writers in a workshop, network and learn from literary agents and editors, published authors and other attendees and ask questions, then the Attendee Package is for you.  

If you’re happy to consume the content, without interacting, consider the View-Only Package.   With this option, you can view all 19 Talks, panels, readings and keynotes. You will be given a link to view the sessions after the ‘Weekend’ on Monday, 13 July in the evening.  Please note that Workshops are not included in this package.

And if you’re simply curious about the Writers’ Weekend and would love to hear Eoin Colfer, Lissa Evans, Jasper Fforde, Nick Barlay and Kate Bradley read from their work, or pick up tips from two talks and two panels, go for the Taster View Package

All details are below.  Whatever option you go for, we welcome you to the Weekend and know that you’ll have a wonderful time!
