2017 Event

The program is ready! Can’t wait to see you in June…


Are you ready for another fantastic weekend of LGBTQ fiction, right in the heart of the Midlands?

The 8th Annual Bold Strokes Book Festival will be June 3rd-4th, 2017 at Waterstones, Nottingham. There will be several panels each day on all kinds of great topics; we’ll talk about writing, genre, sex, publishing, and lots of other stuff to do with the craft of putting these fab books together. On Saturday we’ve got an after party meet and mingle, and on Sunday join us for a late lunch at the New Foresters. Get your books signed, have a laugh, and enjoyed a relaxed and friendly weekend with other word-lovers.

It’s free, it’s fun, it’s books–join us for a fabulous weekend!

  • I. Beacham
