A look ahead to The 2024 Bournemouth Writing Festival – Saturday April 20, 2024

Dominic Wong, director of the Bournemouth Writing Festival, reveals how this event helps both aspiring and established writers to network and gain valuable skills.

The Bournemouth Writing Festival returns this April after its hugely successful inaugural launch last year.
