A mix of free and paid-for events and activities at Bournemouth Writing Festival will involve over 70 experienced writers and professionals from TV and film screenwriters to poets and writing coaches.
From creating credible characters to publishing contracts, writing compelling dialogue to landing an agent, there is something for every budding and seasoned writer to learn.
TV and film screenwriters, best-selling authors, poets, journalists, publicists, writing coaches, editors and publishers will be imparting their advice through talks and practical workshops to improve and progress delegates’ writing.
Free activities include “Writing on the Beach” with Richard & Judy winner Christine Aziz to a Poetry Hunt organised by Bournemouth Poet Laureate Myriam San Marco. There will be literary walks plus “genre breakfasts”.
An Open Mic event on Saturday 22 April, in association with Boscombe-based Doppelganger Dialogues, invites writers to submit their work with the chance of reading it out to an ‘engaged’ audience. Music artist and performer Timo Peach will close the festival with a keynote speech about the future of words.
Festival co-founder Ildiko SpinFisher said, “We are over the moon with the response we have had from writers and professionals to be involved in our first festival. We are incredibly lucky to have such a diverse and talented group of people and topics and look forward to welcoming and growing our writing community here in Dorset.”
The Bournemouth Writing Festival will take place on Friday 21 until Sunday 23 April 2023 in venues in Bournemouth town centre. All events have a limited capacity so booking in advance is essential.
