Newcastle Writing Conference is back!

The Newcastle Writing Conference is coming to the Common Room Newcastle on Saturday 13 May.

New Writing North’s writing conference is an event for writers at all stages of their careers. It aims to demystify the world of publishing and supports writers to make connections with peers and industry experts. Across one day, Newcastle Writing Conference offers a programme of panel events, breakout sessions and practical writing workshops.

This year, writers can gain insight into everything from crowdfunding to crafting the perfect character. You’ll have access to one-to-one meetings with literary agents and be inspired by a keynote from a very special guest author. Whether you’re interested in polishing your synopsis or the power of BookTok, writers will choose their bespoke journey throughout the day.

New Writing North recognises that talent is everywhere but opportunity is not. We’ll be live-streaming our three main events, including the keynote speech, and are offering free bursary places for writers to whom the cost is prohibitive.


The full Newcastle Writing Conference programme will be announced soon!
