  • TheFED Festival of Writing

    Saturday, 15th November 2014 (all day)
    Location: Faraday House, Old Gloucester Street, Holborn, London, WC1N 3AE

    TheFED 2014 Writing Festival and AGM.

    We are making huge strides towards building up TheFED - continuing, and expanding upon the work of the FWWCP - and turning the old pipe-dreams into an exciting reality. 

    We believe that 2014 will be the biggest and best event we have held so far. We are once again looking for workshop leaders who feel they can offer our attendees the outstanding and diverse range of stimulating, informative and enjoyable workshops that all TheFED Festivals are famous for.

    Festival Workshop Offer Form

    TheFED Archive project is moving on apace. One of our goals as a new organisation was to build a complete collection of publications, articles, papers and documents that would be stored safely and securely but remain accessible to our members and the general public.
