There are so many reasons why you must put this date in your diary.
For a start you may be shortlisted! We’ll let you know nearer the time. However, if you took part in a project this year come along anyway and support your fellow writers. A number of the shortlisted nominees will be reading excerpts from their work.
And that’s not all…
Our partners from the Bloomsbury Festival and The Wildlife Trusts will be joining us to talk about last year’s collaboration and read some of their favourite pieces. And we’ll be joined live (it’ll be early!) by a group of New Zealand members fresh from their triumph with Dear 26.
We are just confirming a special guest (honestly) to be with us on the evening to talk about their new book and to do a reading.
And then there are the Awards themselves – 26 Emerging Writer 2021, supported by Quietroom, and 26 Project Writer 2021, supported by Creamer & Co.
All you have to do is click on this link to register and we’ll see you there on the night. You might want to bring a glass of something to toast your fellow scribes.
