“These festivals increase a writer’s confidence and practical knowledge of opportunities available to them. Being funded means it’s not exclusively through ticket prices, which would reduce the diversity of writers. Meeting all sorts of different people is one of the best aspects of it.”
Young writers feedback (2014 festival)
Cost: The whole day will cost just £6.50 including ALL workshops, talks & lunch!
We have made the day as cheap as possible to support access and encourage young writers to travel so there is no concession ticket. If a discounted ticket would help because of long distance travel costs, please get in touch. Also note, advance train tickets can be a real bargain if you are coming a distance but don’t leave it too near the time!
Tickets must be purchased in advance via:
1) Eventbrite: £6.50 + 90p booking fee (£7.40) – Eventbrite book here
As a small team, we’d appreciate you using Eventbrite where possible, but if you have any issues or difficulties paying through the Eventbrite system, or funds mean you need to avoid the 90p booking fee, drop us a line. If you have online banking, a bank transfer is an option. Or if essential, we can do paypal. Please try and use Eventbrite though if possible – we thank you!
Note: Please don’t leave purchasing a ticket until last minute, we don’t know how quick they will sell (& they will they go up slightly for the last week or so as above)
2) Hive groups: If you are a member of a Hive young writers group in Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, please book only via the writer who runs your group
3) Coming as a groups
If you would like to come as a group, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org Group discounts available to support travel costs. If you run a young writers’ group in the North, please get in touch as we’d love to have your group at the festival.
