MILFORD CONFERENCE
CRITIQUE WEEK IN SEPTEMBER
Friday 13th - Friday 20th September 2024
FULLY BOOKED
Full cost £750 for Bed, breakfast and evening meal

Each year fifteen published writers of speculative fiction get together for one special week. We critique work, discuss ideas and generally connect with other like-minded writers. Suitable for both writers who might only have sold one short story, and writers who can only dimly recall what a rejection slip looks like. We're a friendly bunch. Come and join us. Info and booking.

BURSARY INFO for
WRITERS of COLOUR

Bursary applications are open NOW and close on 29th February 2024.

Each bursary fully funds a place (with bed, breakfast and evening meals) for the Milford Conference in September

The bursary scheme is intended as an encouragement, not a quota. We operate an equal opportunities policy so all SF/F writers who are 'Milford qualified' are welcome to apply for paid Conference places.
