W&A events range from one-off masterclass evenings with authors and How to Hook an Agent lunches through to full-day How to Get Published conferences and multi-week evening writing courses. These events take place online, at our offices in Bloomsbury Publishing, or, when we can, at venues across the UK. Wherever possible, W&A events are held in association with literature development charities, universities, and other writing organisations.

Our interactive Writing Calendar is there to keep you up-to-date with all that's going on in the world of writing, enabling you to browse upcoming festivals, events and competitions by keyword, date, genre or location. To add a Writing Calendar entry, simply create/log in to your your W&A account and click here.
