Directed by Lisa Dempster, the Emerging Writers’ Festival is about to go off with style. Running from the 26th of May to the 5th of June, it is run by a collective of professionals within the writing, publishing industries whom hold local and national networks that fulfill the festival’s needs: to educate burgeoning writers about the industry, and promote emerging authors.
With workshops such the Business of Being a Writer that educates individuals about the filing, taxing, and our legalities of the industries; and free plays, and panels, such as the Get Into Genre ones. These Get Into Genre panels range from young adult, to crime fic, enlightening people to the aspects of each genre and how to create a convincing story within that genre.
