Full Programme 2020

Following the unavoidable cancellation of the 2020 WCLF due to the COVID-19 pandemic, plans are underway to move most of the writing workshops and professional development sessions including a group session with a literary agent and individual sessions with an editor online. Exact details of these online workshops will be announced shortly. Those who have already booked places on the writing workshops will be contacted soon by a member of the Festival team.


Full programme of online events coming soon.
