The Writers’ Conference returns in April 2023, bringing writers from all over the East Midlands region, and beyond, together with the industry, for a day of inspiration and networking. Get your creative juices flowing, discover new pathways and make connections.

Hosted at the University of Derby, this will be a day of workshops, panel discussions and talks – including from keynote speakers (to be announced).

Authors, poets, publishers and agents will feature on our full programme, which will be released soon.

Get your early bird tickets for the conference now, for just £60 (£55 for concessions) and with your full ticket comes the chance to apply for a coveted one-to-one with a leading literary agent.

Emma Purshouse will be appearing alongside Yomi Soda and Sophie Sparham as part of a panel discussion ‘Poets and their Roles’ at 3.05pm.  The discussion will be chaired by Owen Craven-Griffiths.
