Get an in-depth look at how key black and Asian writers got publishing deals, and how major spoken word artists developed their careers. The day’s programme includes panels, Q&A and informal ‘salon’ sessions looking at social media and writers, and Reading Habits of Writers, as well as lots of opportunities to network.
Followed by an evening’s entertainment featuring the Speakeasy band, Young Authors and Poets and special guest Kei Miller.
