The best-selling author of The Time-Traveler's Wife draws on her experiences as a writer and visual artist to consider the intersection of art, technology, and the future of the written word.
"The Royal Society of Literature is delighted to be involved in TLC’s third Digital Conference: an opportunity to help build bridges between established and emerging writers, and to look to the literary future with tough-minded optimism."
"There are conferences about writing as craft and art; the importance of writing and literature; and the opportunities new technologies and platforms are offering today’s writers. This conference offers all of this in one."
"There is a huge desire to write among the public and thanks to digitisation and technology, the tools exist for new writers to become published authors. TLC’s conference addresses this confluence, and provides an invaluable forum for the sharing of best practice."
"Free Word is extremely proud of its association with TLC’s Writing in a Digital Age Conference, which brings new audiences from the UK and overseas. This is a unique, landmark event bringing together the traditional and digital publishing world."
"TLC has always supported the best kind of writing, and access for everybody to the best kind of editing – this conference is long overdue, and all credit to them for setting it up."
"TLC is a sharp observer of contemporary writing in Britain today, and this annual conference represents the cutting-edge: incisive, probing – with a hint of danger. It’s a great thrill to be involved. 2013."
