The 7th International Women's Fiction Festival


23-26 September 2010

This is a literary festival dedicated to women’s fiction from all of Europe. It attracts best-selling writers, agents, translators and editors from international publishing houses to the beautiful city of the Sassi, Matera in southern Italy.

There is a full programme of talks and workshops plus there is time for informal contact making it suitable for published or unpublished writers who want to learn and do some market research.

The 7th International Women’s Fiction Festival Writers’ Conference will be building on its past successes to offer the writer - at whatever point they are in their careers - useful information and contacts at the international level. The unusually intimate ‘feel’ of the writers’ conference is conducive to making new friends and expanding your writing horizons.

The Festival will offer groundbreaking workshops guaranteed to add depth and style to your writing. Agents and Editors will help you make your book the best it can be. This year the WFF Writers Conference will be more interactive, with Ask-the-Agent and Ask-the-Editor free for alls and brainstorming sessions in unusual places.
