It’s not too late to attend the Stockholm Writers Festival -August 18-20.
Do you love to write? Have you stopped yourself from ever beginning or keep putting off what you are being called to do? Lean into your passion and take action. Make a promise to begin now. This event is a way to surround yourself with other writers who will inspire you, can help you, support you if you are not sure. It is about the journey as much as the work and the people that are part of that journey who can add more meaning to your life.
This festival began when Founder, Catherine Pettersson, began to wonder why she and other members of her writing group were traveling to other countries to meet like-minded writers when there was such a strong writing community in Stockholm – and in 2017, the festival was born.
The Stockholm Writers Festival is an annual event that brings together writers from various genres and backgrounds to engage in workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. The festival provides a platform for both aspiring and established writers to enhance their craft, connect with fellow writers, and gain insights from industry professionals.
During the festival, participants can attend a range of workshops and masterclasses that cover different aspects of writing, such as fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and publishing. These sessions are typically led by accomplished authors, editors, literary agents, and other experts in the field. Workshops often focus on topics like storytelling techniques, character development, manuscript editing, and navigating the publishing industry.
In addition to workshops, the Stockholm Writers Festival features panel discussions and keynote presentations by renowned authors, offering valuable perspectives on writing, creativity, and the writing life. Attendees have the opportunity to interact with speakers, ask questions, and gain insights into the writing process.
The festival also offers networking opportunities, allowing writers to connect with agents, publishers, and fellow writers from around the world. These interactions can lead to potential collaborations, feedback on works-in-progress, and valuable industry contacts.
The Stockholm Writers Festival typically takes place over a few days, providing an immersive and inspiring experience for writers at all stages of their journey. It serves as a vibrant hub for learning, inspiration, and community building within the writing community.
