Milford SF Writers' Conference
Each year a small group of published writers of speculative fiction get together for one special week in a secluded residential location in beautiful Snowdonia, North Wales, to critique work, discuss ideas and generally connect with other writers. Note: Speculative fiction includes science fiction, fantasy and all their sub genres.
Upcoming Milford Writers Retreat 25th February to 3rd March 2018 at Trigonos. No formal crit sessions, just plenty of time to write. Please enquire for last minute places. Two available at the time of writing. Phone 01484 606230.
Booking for MIlford 2019 (14th - 21st Sept) is in full swing. Not many places left at the time of writing (Feb 2018).
2020 dates are 12th - 19th September.
Because Milford has been over-subscribed for the past few years we ask that people do not attend more than two years in a row without stepping back and taking a break of at least a year. If you have attended for two years running and then apply for a third consecutive year you will only get a place if we are under-booked.

We have a limited number of bursaries available, however the bursary scheme is intended as an encouragement, not a quota. We operate an equal opportunities policy so all SF/F writers who are 'Milford qualified' are welcome to apply for the full-price Milford SF Writers' Conference places subject to availability.
Future bursaries may be avilable for writers of colour (BME). Full or part bursaries may also be available on the grounds of need for writers who have never attended a Milford before. Please enquire.
