We’re delighted to be coming to Bradford in January. The Northern Writers’ Awards discover and support writers in the North of England, supporting work-in-progress towards publication. The Awards offer a wide range of opportunities for writers at all stages of their careers, including publication, mentoring, manuscript assessments and cash awards to buy time to write.

The Bradford Roadshow will include a Q&A session with Northern Writers’ Award winners, advice from a publisher and other professionals and the chance to network with fellow writers. This event is open to writers at all career stages.
