The Literary Consultancy is delighted to announce the third year programme for the Writing in a Digital Age Literary Conference, with pioneering author and campaigner Cory Doctorow delivering the opening keynote.
The conference will set the scene for debate and discussion over two days, with more than 30 writers, journalists, publishers, literary agents, and digital pioneers taking part. In a new development for 2014, conference ticket holders will also be entitled to a third bonus day which will include a Masterclass from the Royal Society of Literature (RSL) in association with Booker Prize Foundation and a dynamic session with literary agents, trade-publishers and author-publishers. A revamped Pen Factor competition, supported by Kobo Writing Life, offers the chance for 15 writers to benefit from professional feedback on their writing and in-group critiquing on June 15th.
“There are conferences about writing as craft & art; the importance of writing & literature; and the opportunities new technologies & platforms are offering today’s writers. This conference offers all of this in one, and is a unique event in the writing calendar.”
– Orna Ross, Founder of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi)
