The Writers’ Weekend Winchester and Writing Magazine are teaming up to run the Short Fiction competition to celebrate the opening of the first Writers’ Weekend, 10-12 July, at the University of Winchester.

The closing date is 19 June.

65 Literary agents, commissioning editors, published authors and industry professionals will visit the Hampshire city to give 19 talks, 18 workshops, and over 700 one-to-one sessions with emerging writers keen to pitch their work and receive supportive feedback.
