The third Bronte Festival of Women’s writing weekend takes place 31 August – 2 September 2012. It will feature readings, workshops, talks and more from prominent and emerging women writers!

Main Attractions

Sadie Jones discusses her latest novel The Uninvited Guests (2012), a ‘spellbinding thriller that strips away the respectable layers of Edwardian society to reveal the dark secrets beneath’. Her first novel, The Outcast (2008) won the Costa First Novel Award.

Poets Zoe Brigley and Amanda Dalton feture in events at both venues over the weekend

The weekend will also feature writers Helen Simpson, Tiffany Murray and Claire Harman discussing whether Jane Austen or the Brontë sisters have had the greatest influence on contemporary fiction. read more about this event on Bronte Blog
