My big work thing for the new year is a Literature Network project, the first East Midlands Writer’s Conference, dubbed the Writing Industries Conference 2008. If you are within spitting distance of Loughborough on Saturday 9th February 2008 then get along and join in. Agent one-to-ones, keynotes speakers, editors and other industry professionals from across publishing, poetry, spoken word and all other types of writing. Be quick getting your ticket though as they are selling out quickly. I’ll be posting more news about this as and when it becomes available. See website for all the details.
