Calling all Essex writers! We are pleased to announce our plans for Essex Authors Day 2021, which is part of the Essex Book Festival.

Essex Authors Day is on Saturday 25 September 2021, at the Meetings Hub in Chelmsford Library. The programme will comprise of three exciting seminars, led by experienced authors Jonathan Crane, Simon Edge and Lizzie Chantree.

Each seminar covers a different topic, supporting local writers with advice and information. They cover the craft of writing, submissions and editing process, and how to market your book. If you are an aspiring, emerging or well-established author, this is your chance to learn new skills!

Tickets cost £5 per person, per session and must be booked in advance. Don't miss out, book your place now!


We want everyone to feel safe when attending our in-person events and have put careful measures in place. All seating in the all venues will be socially distanced. Customers can still use the NHS QR code or leave their details if they wish. We will encourage you to wear masks and our team will all be in them unless medically exempt. Hand sanitiser will be available and all surfaces and toilet facilities are regularly cleaned.
