One of my followers has asked me to let you know about her writing conference and classes in Brighton. It’s such a  cool spot, full of creatives and there’s the sea, the sea, the sea!

See below:

Brighton writing conference Write by the Beach returns in 2017 for a whole weekend of talks, workshops and inspiration. Following on from the sell out success of the 2016 conference the organisers have extended the event, with a jam packed, not to be missed line up.

Held over the weekend of April 1st and 2nd , Write by the Beach brings together a host of industry insiders including agents, publishers and writers, all discussing how to write and how to get published.

Each day will see six amazing sessions discussing all aspects of the writing process.  We will help you with writing the perfect pitch, how to decide on the right form of publishing for you, honing your style, getting your script on air and so much more.

We have a host of industry experts delivery each session, including

  • Bestselling writers such as CL Taylor, Rowan Coleman, Tamsyn Murray and Julie Cohen.
  •  TV and radio royalty such as Sue Teddern (Radio 4),  Pete Lawson (Eastenders) and Karen Rose (Sweet Talk Productions).
  • Top agents such as Louise Burns from Andrew Mann, Rebecca Carter from Janklow and Nesbit, Camilla Wray from Darley Anderson, David Headley from DHA and Jemima Forrester from David Higham Associates.
  • Publishers such as Candida Lacey from Myriad, Xander Cansell from Unbound and Matthew Smith from Urbane.

New to this year’s conference we are also offering every single delegate the amazing opportunity to pitch their work to an industry insider.  Each delegate will get 10 minutes sitting opposite a top agent, publisher or commissioner.  And if you come on both days you get two chances to pitch to two different insiders.

Organised by local writer’s co-operative, The Beach Hut Writers, this is a conference which focuses on what writers want and need to know.   The five writers behind the event are Bridget Whelan, Kate Harrison, Erinna Mettler, Laura Wilkinson and Araminta Hall.

Held in the gorgeous Angel House on Hove seafront, the day runs from 10am-4pm and includes tea, coffee and a delicious lunch.  Tickets can be bought for one or both days, costing £130 for the day or £230 for the weekend.   Please check our website for the timetable for each day www.beachhutwritingacademy.com.  Tickets can be purchased from www.eventbrite.com.
