The University of Winchester Writers’ Festival – 16-18th June 2017

The University of Winchester Writers’ Festival was founded in 1980 by Barbara Large, MBE, who I was lucky enough to meet for the first time two years ago.

Barbara Large, MBE – Founder of The University of Winchester Writers’ Festival

Back in 1983, Barbara, who is a Fellow of the University of Winchester, understood that writers need to meet other writers and be given the opportunity to connect with the literary and publishing worlds.  Scary places to the uninitiated.

The University of Winchester Writers’ Festival is now in its 34th year and is held over 3 days when you will have the opportunity to listen to the words of wisdom of 60 speakers.  The poet, playwright and broadcaster, Lemn Sissay MBE, will give the Keynote Address at the 2017 Writers’ Festival on 17th June.

Networking with other writers is invaluable.  It gives you an untapped opportunity to bounce ideas around.  The Festival also offers full-day  courses and Sunday workshops, with limited availability.  So book now to avoid disappointment.
