Conference Passes

The 2014 Literary Conference passes are now available for purchase. All passes are for the full conference programme across two full days, with free registration to a third bonus day of workshops and one-to-ones (see Programme for full details and itinerary across all three days).

Literary Conference passes give access to all the seminars, discussions, and workshops, and include lunch and refreshments throughout, as well as drinks at the end of each day, when you have the opportunity to mingle with participants, speakers, and other delegates.

All attending writers are invited to take part in the Pen Factor Competition, for the chance to win a year’s worth of free entry to TLC literary events and workshops as well as valuable editorial support and industry-informed advice. The winner, as well as two runners-up, will also win a free e-reader and author photo shoot courtesy of this year’s Pen Factor sponsor, Kobo Writing Life. For more information, check out the Pen Factor page.

Conference Pass (available until June): £325 (exc. VAT)*
