Blogging Live from Milford – Day Eight

milford-bannerSaturday 17th September

Jacey Bedford writes: Milford is over for another year and we’re all departing after breakfast to places like Hastings, Warrington, Glastonbury, London,  Brighton, Southampton, Huddersfield, and Birmingham. Our international attendee, Amy, has a few days in London before flying back to Boston. Because of other commitments, a couple of people had to leave on Friday, heading for Bournemouth and Whitby. It’s been a super week and it’s sad to say goodbye to friends old and new, but we’ll probably see each other again at any number of conventions.

I’m only at home for a few days before I depart for Fantasycon by the Sea in Scarborough, and then I’ll be at Bristolcon in October, and Eastercon next year, held in Birmingham.

And, of course, there’s next year’s Milford to look forward to in September. As I write it’s almost fully booked and there is only one available place for 2017, plus a couple of bursary places for writers of colour. Details here plus downloadable application forms. If you’re interested in coming it’s always worth putting your name on the waiting list as there are always a few people drop out due to unforeseen circumstances. All the details are on the Milford website at

We’ve now opened the booking for Milford 2018 and have also reserved the dates for Milford 2019.

  • Milford 2017: 9th – 16th September
    Almost fully booked.
  • Milford 2018: 15th – 22nd September
    Booking open now
  • Milford 2019: 14th – 21st September
    Booking opens 16th September 2017

See you at a future Milford. It just remains to load the car and go.
