Everyone attending the 'Public Edit' may submit a text of up to 2000 words, in any genre of fiction or non-fiction. Two texts will be chosen at random and distributed to the audience in advance - novelist, non-fiction writer and NAW Director Richard Beard will then publicly edit these texts, working on the principle that writers face similar challenges and an edit for one is an edit for all.

After booking, please send your Public Edit submission (no more than 2000 words) to: richard@thenationalacademyofwriting.org.uk. by Wednesday 7th October. Submission of a text is optional – the two selected texts will be circulated ahead of the event.
