Are you going to the Summer Festival of Writing 2021?
This time last year, the Jericho Writers team stopped sleeping and set to create the largest online writing festival we possibly could. We had no real proof of concept; no real clue how we were going to pull it off; and no way of knowing whether anyone would even turn up. We just knew that we wanted to capture the magic of the physical Festival of Writing in an online space, but make it bigger, better and open to more people than ever before.
The result ended up being better than our wildest dreams. We had over 1,000 writers attend from every continent across the globe. We hosted huge names and found a new family of writers who immediately became friends for life.
We’ve taken on your feedback from last year and are so pleased to be bringing the Summer Festival of Writing back for 2021. This year, we’re announcing earlier, with early-bird tickets offering a HUGE discount to those who book now.
We’ve not announced the full programme yet, but ticket-holders can look forward to over thirty-five online events stretching from June to August. Our speaks feature an international rostra of names such as the incredible Mark Dawson; Caleb Azumah Nelson; CD Major; and Folio Literary Agency. Just like last year, all tickets also include an entry into Friday Night Live competition, which has previously launched too many writing careers to count! You’ll also be able to watch as many events as you want live, or catch up on replay until 30 September.
To make it even more affordable, early-bird tickets are an additional 50% off for members and we’ll also be giving away thirty free places to deserving under-represented writers, like last year.
So, will you be coming to the 2021 Summer Festival of Writing?! Those of you who came along last year, what will bring you back again?
