Shout out for the National Association of Writers' Groups (NAWG) Open Festival of Writing. It's taking place in Warwick this year, 30th August - 1st September. I went last year and had a great time - learned lots and met many lovely fellow writers.
Look on their website www.nawg.co.uk for more details but basically, for the full weekend it's £230 for NAWG members, £250 for non-members. You can also go as a day delegate which is cheaper but still worth considering.
This year they have workshops on Crime writing, novel writing, self hypnosis to increase your creativity, comedy writing, script writing, poetry, short story writing and e-book publishing. There is a delicious gala dinner on the Saturday night with Gervase Phinn as after dinner speaker!
I'm hoping to go again and I'd love to see you there too!
