They say everyone has a book in them, but not everyone can write it, but you could help unleash that inner novel with a a free two-day writers' event coming to Nottingham this October. Aimed at anyone interested in reading or writing books, the New Writers UK Book Festival & Fayre will be held at County Hall in West Bridgford, Nottingham on Friday October 7 from 6pm-10pm and Saturday October 8 from 10am-5pm. 

Guest speakers include former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Mark Crossley who will be talking about his new autobiography and holding a Q and A and signing session, Mills & Boon author Kate Walker who will talk about writing romantic fiction and Dee Whitehead who played Maggie Calder in Emmerdale.

Other events planned for the festival include a creative writing workshop, advice on writing non-fiction, a storytelling masterclass from Pete Davis from the Storytellers of Nottingham and a talk on Being a Children's Writer from Lucy Daniel Raby, whose screenwriting credits include Angelina Ballerina.

It's a packed programme of events with opportunities to meet authors, hear advice on getting published and visit a range of book stalls and there is also a special creative writing workshop for children aged 7-12. Best of all, with no entrance fee, all of the talks and workshops are free, as is parking, which is available on both days. No booking is required (excluding the children's creative writing session.)

Full details of the event are available on the New Writers UK Website
