If you’re looking for something to do during the winter months, it could be a great time for finally writing your first novel.

For advice and support on the business-side of getting your work published, you can buy a ticket for the National Creative Writing Industry Conference 2020. Running from 26th October-30th October, the conference offers a two-day package for each participant with a workshop on day one and a 15-minute ‘pitch session’ with an agent on day two.

The keynote speaker session and panel discussion are free, and tickets for the rest are £20 with a limited number of £10 tickets for those who are underrepresented writers (POC/LGBTQ+/Low-Income/Disabled)

The author keynote will be led by Irenosen Okojie, a Nigerian British writer. Okojie’s debut novel Butterfly Fish won a Betty Trask award and was shortlisted for an Edinburgh International First Book Award.
