Geneva Writers Conference

Mid Morning Mix // Events // Feb. 21, 2018

Paula Read and Jennifer Bew Orr, Assistant Directors of the Geneva Writers Conference, talk about what agents really want from their writers, writing as activism and, when it comes to making money from writing, whether there are certain genres that can be more lucrative; all of which will be covered in depth as panel discussions at this year's Geneva Writer's Conference. 


More than 200 writers and aspiring writers will take part in a weekend of workshops, panels and networking, March 2-4, organized by the Geneva Writers’ Group.

Among the big names who will be leading sessions at the conference are British writer, Bernadine Evaristo; Hungarian-born poet, George Szirtes; author of over 30 children’s books, Rachel Vail; and BBC producer, author and historian, Colin Grant.

Other instructors include leading writers of fiction, non-fiction, travel and poetry, as well as representatives of literary agencies and publishing houses.

The Conference begins the evening of March 2nd and is open anyone who has an interest in writing. Registration costs 250 CHF for the weekend, including refreshments. More info and registration is available here
