Working on a novel, short story or children’s book? The Virtual Writers’ Weekend is where writers working in all genres and at all levels attend talks with Q&A, find writing support, receive editorial feedback, meet one-to-one with literary agents to pitch their manuscript, and gather in chat rooms to discuss writing issues important to them. New this year: join a virtual writing group for peer feedback! Fantastic speakers: Diana Gabaldon (author of the 'Outlander' series), children's author/illustrator Chris Riddell, Kate Mosse, Kiran Millwood Hargrave, Lissa Evans, Abi Dare, Robert Fabbri, Helen Fields, MG Leonard, Ness Wood, Reshma Ruia and many more, including 35 literary agents giving one-to-ones! The event is held online using easy-to-use software that is every bit as interactive as an in-person event. Last year's attendees said that the Virtual Writers' Weekend far exceeded their expectations for a virtual event! We're also running six writing competitions with a deadline of 28 May.
