The Northern Writers’ Awards are open to both new and experienced writers, and this year includes a special new award – the Channel 4/Northumbria University Award – for people interested in writing for television.
You will hear from and meet script editors and TV producers who are interested in diverse new stories from the North of England, previous winners of the Northern Writers’ Awards who’ve gone on to great success, and the team at New Writing North who manage the awards.
