Bec Evans, Chair of LBF Writers’ Summit, author and co-founder of, said:

I’m thrilled to be chairing the new format LBF Writers’ Summit. The LBF has been instrumental in my career in publishing and, as a writer, it has a special place in my heart – I met my agent at the fair, and the following year pitched my book to publishers – one of which I signed with. I encourage writers who are keen to learn, develop their craft and grow their network to attend. It’s a great forum to meet peers, agents, publishers – to learn about the business of writing and publishing, get advice on everything from editorial to marketing, and get a shot of inspiration to keep going.”

Orna O’Brien, Conference Manager at LBF said:

“We have had fantastic response from writers who attended previous Writers’ Summits and we are delighted to be bringing this popular conference to LBF. Writers have more opportunities to get their work published than ever before but publishing your own work needs networks and expertise. The Writers’ Summit provides these in spades and it means attendees will not only benefit from the conference but all the professional opportunities of the Insights Programme within LBF itself.”

Early bird ticket prices for The Writers’ Summit start from £149 (incl. VAT) including literary lunch, refreshments and 3-day ticket to LBF.
