    1. You mean to book spaces for talks? The talks are free and you don’t need to book. Exact locations will be confirmed closer to the festival, but will definitely be at Hendon Campus, Middlesex University.

      1. No. I meant for the pitches to perform reading. I was told about in class that the places were limited and to get onto it asap. So far cant see a link. I’m doing creative and media writing at hendon

      2. Hi there. If you go onto the programme (either Tuesday or Wednesday) you will be able to chose which ever event you like. For example: 26 March –> click on Speed-pitch –> this should take you to a description of the event and everything you’ll need to know in order to sign up. Please have a look around to find the events you would like to participate in, and please do get back to us if you have got any more questions 🙂
