I got the email notification of this last night. The 2007 Screenwriters’ Festival will be taking place between the 3-6 July, once more in Cheltenham. The 5th and 6th of July will be Professional Days. Presumably the 3rd and 4th will be newbie days, in which case I hope they’ve listened to feedback. Last year’s New Writers’ Day came in for a lot of stick for being, as I understand it, condescending as fuck.
Anyhow, confirmed speakers so far include: Anthony Horowitz, Chris Smith, Michael Goldenberg, William Nicholson, and media whore/celebrity shrink Raj Persaud, among others.
Tickets go on sale at the end of Feb. A preliminary programme is available.
