Festival of Romance 2012: Call for Authors (UK)

Post date: 08 March 2012
Deadline (registration): 1 April 2012

Date: 16 - 18 November 2012

The Festival of Romance is the UK's only literary festival dedicated to romantic fiction and takes place from 16th to 18th November 2012 in Bedford. Building on the success of our first year we're moving to a town centre location and using a set of venues within 1-2 minutes walk of each other. With the variety of possible venues available, the Festival programme will be expanded to include more events with more promotional opportunities for authors.

Because we will be using a box office for ticket sales to the public this year's programme needs to be finalised much earlier and so we're asking authors who would like to participate in the Festival this year to sign-up before 1st April 2012.

Festival supporting authors will benefit from the following:
  • Named on website (www.romanticfiction.org) as supporting author, with link;
  • Acknowledgements in Festival literature;
  • Opportunity to take part as an author in Festival events. All supporting authors will be offered a choice of events (subject to availability);
  • Opportunity to take part in book signing event;
  • Opportunity to enter books in Romance Reader Awards (small entry fee applies);
  • Ticket to exclusive Authors Brunch on Sunday, 18th Nov.
