TLS partners with Literary Consultancy conference

The Times Literary Supplement will be the media partner for the The Literary Consultancy’s 2013 Writing in a Digital Age Conference.

Held at the Free Word Centre on 7th and 8th of June, the conference for writers will feature a keynote address from author Audrey Niffenegger, and include involvement from publishers such as Profile m.d. Andrew Franklin, Random House’s Dan Franklin, and The Friday Project’s Scott Pack, as well as agents including Gordon Wise from Curtis Brown and Jennifer Custer of AM Heath.

The day will include the Pen Factor, which will see industry professionals appraise six writing projects before declaring a winner, and Book Hackday, where content creators, technologists and designers will have one day to develop new concepts and prototypes.

Rebecca Swift of The Literary Consultancy said: “One of the key themes of this year's conference is ‘quality in a digital age’. We want to ask tough questions about how this can be measured and maintained in the shifting publishing climate, and look forward to welcoming one of the world's leading literary journals into our conversations at the conference and beyond.”
