To launch our first virtual conference on Friday morning, we’re delighted to welcome Daljit Nagra, poet and chair of the Royal Society of Literature.

We’ll also welcome Richard Russell, Chief Operating Officer of Arts Council England, and NAWE’s chair Jonathan Davidson to consider where we are and what next for our sector.

We're very excited as well that Kate Clanchy will be joining us as our evening guest speaker on Friday 12th and Kit de Waal on Saturday 13th, with Romalyn Ante joining us on the Saturday afternoon to talk about creative writing and healthcare.
