We are thrilled to join the Royal Society of Literature as associate for The Literary Consultancy’s Literary Conference: Writing in a Digital Age. A three-day event for writers and those working with writers, Writing in a Digital Age offers up a hugely diverse selection of talks, headed up by some of the most knowledgeable and esteemed names in the industry.
There will be talks and panels by 30+ industry specialists (Nielsen, United Agents, Kobo, Faber&Faber, Inkle, Granta Books, Amazon and more) plus a bonus third day of practical workshops, and the Kobo Writing Life-sponsored Pen Factor Writing Competition. An opening keynote from Cory Doctorow will address the hot topic issue of “Intellectual Property in a Digital Age” and in other program highlights, ALLi will offer up one on one sessions for those taking part in the conference, exploring the world of writing for author-publishers. ALLi’s director, Orna Ross, will also join Joanna Penn for an in-depth session exploring how writers can become the ‘creative directors’ of their own careers, and what it takes to succeed as an indie author.
The mix between old and new and the sheer breadth of the conference makes this a really exciting and unique event in the annual literary calendar – and we are absolutely thrilled to be part of it.
