Authors have been promoted by New Writing North. They work to promote and support writers in the North of England. This event is a prelude to the 2019 Festival of Words, which will take place in October.
New Writing North run regular talent programmes for writers. They also host the flagship Northern Writers’ Awards.
Partnering with local libraries, New North Writing aims to engage readers with authors. Not just any authors, ones that are local to them.
Established in 2016 they are keen to promote reading and culture to adults and also children. While they are a small organisation they have huge ambitions to make the North of England a culturally rich place.
The Spring Dayfest will showcase an eclectic mix of writing. It will range from crime, poetry and romance. While it will also include something altogether more dark and sinister.
