English language writer in Scandinavia? Then you might want to check out the Stockholm Writers Festival, where you’ll have the chance to hone your craft, learn from experts, and pitch to agents and editors.
The three-day event will take place near Humlegården in central Stockholm and is aimed at all kinds of writers, from total beginners to those who’ve already submitted manuscripts. A mix of fiction and non-fiction writers will be in attendance, along with literary agents from the US and the UK.
You’ll need a festival pass to attend the event (around 2700 SEK) and can then add on extra packages if you want to attend additional workshops and talks. This year’s keynote will be delivered by former Writer’s Digest publisher Jane Friedman.
