The Birmingham Literature Festival is coming up in October, which Writing West Midlands programmes and produces. As you’d expect, there are lots of events for writers, including writing workshops and special author events aimed at writers. There are also some opportunities for you to perform your work. One of the main things you can get involved in is Short & Sweet on Friday 9 October, where you can test out your writing by reading it out to a live audience.
