The National Creative Writing Graduate Fair is back!

Join Manchester-based indie publisher Comma Press and The Writing School at MMU for their annual event for creative writers of all disciplines.

Now in its third year, the NCWGF is the writing fair designed to bring the industry's best agents, publishers and authors to writers based in the North of England and beyond. The best value fair of its kind, the day will feature:

— A key note speech from a leading author (TBA)

— Panels discussions with agents, editors, authors and booksellers on topics like 'New Opportunities for Writers in the Digital Age', 'Journeys to Publication' and 'How to Hook Agents, Publishers and Readers'

— Focused break-away sessions on topics like writing for young adults, setting up a writing group, and marketing and self promotion

— Individually matched pitching sessions with two agents or editors, based on your chosen genre of writing

The full line up of talks, workshops and participants will be announced at the beginning of October.

Tickets are 40/35 when bought as a group of 5.

We are also offering a select number of reduced price places to writers who would otherwise not be able to attend. If you'd like to apply for one of these places, please contact [email protected] for more information.
