Writing in a Digital Age

June 23, 2014 | Conference, Other News

Our Writing in a Digital Age Literary Conference ran over the weekend of 13-15 June, and was a huge success as the catalyst for a great deal of buzz, learning, networking and inspiration which we are already starting to collate on our Conference site. We were delighted to welcome committed writers and industry specialists across two days of panels and talks, and to open up our Writers’ Fair for the first ever Bonus Day of workshops, stalls and conversation.

The Guardian, our official Conference media partner,  live-blogged from the Free Word Centre, with Claire Armitstead bringing in questions from readers to the live panels. Journalist Alison Flood contributed this article based on exclusive digital publishing statistics revealed by Steve Bohme of Nielsen Books for our Industry Snapshot.  We were particularly delighted to welcome pioneering author and digital rights activist Cory Doctorow, whose stimulating keynote about Intellectual Property in the Digital Age can be heard in full here.

You can catch up on all of our Literary Conference panels in our commissioned write-ups page here, and see here for all the latest press coverage of the event. Further information including a Storify and photography gallery will be uploaded shortly.
