Verulam Writers’ annual conference, ‘Get Writing’ is being held on Saturday 20 April at the University of Hertfordshire. I have attended this conference a few times and it is going from strength to strength, having started originally in a small school with just a few workshops and speakers. This year they are featuring workshops on crime writing, editing, writing for children, writing for radio and television, feature writing and even neurolinguistic programming – sounds intriguing! There are also question and answer panels, 5 minute pitches and the chance to book 10 minute pitches for an extra fee of £10. The cost for the day is £55, including lunch.
More details can be found on the website. Click on the yellow button over the spinning sign which takes you to an animation you can work through. Personally I found the animation very difficult to navigate. Finally I found a way to download the provisional brochure which is much easier to read, plus a pdf of the workshops. Unfortunately both the animation and the brochure seem to be half finished with lots of typos and in places what looks like draft text, but the event is usually run very professionally so I’m sure this is just an oversight!
