I have attended many Winchester Writers' Conferences over the years both as a delegate and latterly as a speaker and workshop leader and can recommend it to anyone keen to improve their writing skills. It's also a great opportunity to make new contacts, meet agents, authors and publishers. There are 43 workshops, 60 lectures and 500 one-to-one appointments.
The conference covers novel writing, adults and children's books, poetry, scripts for a radio or television play and non fiction. You can also pitch your work to literary agents and commissioning editors.
There is also a series of week long workshops running from 28th June to 2nd July. For more information visit http://www.writersconference.co.uk/weeklong.htm
