Edinburgh Women’s Fiction Festival

There’s a NEW fiction festival in town. In Edinburgh to be precise, the city already at the centre of bookish goodness in the shape of bookshops, the big Edinburgh book festival, the many gorgeous second hand stores and gloriously cosy places to read them!

Be prepared then for this…..

Their website says:

The Edinburgh Women’s Fiction Festival is a new literary festival celebrating writing for, by, and about women. We are an inclusive event and welcome everyone who finds joy in reading women’s stories – commercial, romance, historical, literary, book club and beyond.

Our aim is to give readers the opportunity to connect with their favourite writers.
