The Literary Conference: Writing in a Digital Age

January 16, 2012 | Conference, Events, TLC Talent

Digital PosterJune 8-9th 2012, TLC offers 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.

Speakers include leading authors and industry figures: HARI KUNZRU, KATE MOSSE, NICOLA MORGAN, SIMON TREWIN, MARIA REJT, CATHRYN SUMMERHAYES, LINDA GRANT, DAVID GODWIN, ROBERT KROESE, KAROLINA SUTTON, plus many more!

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.

In association with Free Word, Arvon, The Literary Platform and Commonwealth Writers.
