MIlford SF Writers’ Conference

Each year a small group of published writers of speculative fiction get together for one special week in a secluded residential location in beautiful Snowdonia, North Wales, to critique work, discuss ideas and generally connect with other writers. Note: Speculative fiction includes science fiction, fantasy and all their sub genres.

Milford 2017 will be held 9th to 16th September. It’s almost fully booked, but you can go on the waiting list in case a place becomes available. In 2016 all the mailing list people got places due to cancellations.

Milford 2018 will be held 15th – 22nd September. Booking is open now.

Milford 2019 will be 14th – 21st September. Booking opens on 16th September 2017.
