Milford SF Writers' Conference
Each year a small group of published writers of speculative fiction get together for one special week in a secluded residential location in beautiful Snowdonia, North Wales, to critique work, discuss ideas and generally connect with other writers. Note: Speculative fiction includes science fiction, fantasy and all their sub genres.
Milford 2016 will be held
10th to 17th September.
Milford 2017 will be held
9th to 16th September. Booking open now.
If you wish to go on the mailing list for future Milfords, email jacey(at)jaceybedford.co.uk, or phone 01484 606230.
Because Milford has been over-subscribed for the past few years we ask that people do not attend more than two years in a row without stepping back and taking a break of at least a year. If you have attended for two years running and then apply for a third consecutive year you will only get a place at the last minute if we are under-booked.

FUNDED PLACES FOR TWO SF WRITERS OF COLOUR (BME) IN 2017
Due to the generosity of the committee of 8Squared Con, and an anonymous (writer) donor, Milford SF Writers' Conference is able to offer two bursaries for self-identifying science fiction/fantasy writers of colour, i.e. of black or minority ethnicity, to attend the 2017 Milford SF Writers' Conference in the UK from 9th - 16th September. Writers from all over the world (far and near) are invited to apply as long as they write in English. Applicants must be 'Milford qualified' (i.e at least one SF story sale).
The bursary will cover the cost of the conference fee and full board accommodation (i.e. room and all meals). The bursary value is £610. The bursary does not cover the cost of transport to or from the conference from either inside or outside the UK.
This is intended to be an encouragement and not a quota. We only have two bursaries available, however we operate an equal opportunities policy so all SF/F writers who are 'Milford qualified' are welcome to apply for the full-price Milford SF Writers' Conference places subject to availability.
