If you’re feeling the encroaching winter weather all the way to your fingers and toes, then why not check out some of the great literary events happening around the country over the next few weeks to keep you inside and warm!

Here are our top three winter warming events:


  1. Chester Literary Festival, Saturday 10 November – Saturday 1 December 2018, with a bumper line up, including Lemm Sissay, Pam Eyres and Hollie McNish! [1]
  2. Or, why not head down to The British Library, London, where they have a whole host of upcoming events, from an afternoon with Ian Rankin to Judith Kerr in Conversation and a poetry pamphlet celebration!!! [2]
  3. The London Book Fair, 1st December, a Writer’s Summit where you can choose the best publishing path, book a one to one with an agent and hear from a variety of speakers in the publishing field! [3]

But, if you do choose to stay at home in front of the fire and write, then don’t forget we are currently open to submissions on the theme of ‘Waiting.’ for PBR7. Send your work to us at: or have a look at the full submission details here.
