Wolves & Apples 2021

Our programme of courses, workshops, talks and events for writers of fiction for children and young adults took place in 2021. Here are the details of what went on.

Wolves & Apples Online Conference.

The online Wolves & Apples conference took place in autumn 2021, with talks and advice for aspiring children’s writers from guests such as Bali RaI, Melvin Burgess and Elle McNicoll.

MIchael Rosen offered a talk on November 2nd giving aspiring children’s poets and authors a chance to benefit from his huge experience, and pick his brain for answers to their burning questions.

Each talk could be booked individually and we kept the session prices low to make it accessible for everyone. There was also a festival pass which gave a place at every talk.
