Pitch Your Event

Ness Book Fest 2023

NessBookFest is returning on the 28th of September until the 30th of September 2023 and we are looking for your events!

The pitching window is open from 4th March until 1st April 2023 (the window will close at 23.59 on the 31st).

Everybody is welcome to pitch an event, whether the event is online, in person or otherwise. At our festival, there’s something for everyone; from crime & thriller to science fiction, academic and creative, workshops, readings & panels, illustrators and of course we will have a full children’s programme brought to local schools – so all ideas will be considered.

The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Future’, so we are particularly interested in events that interpret this theme in any way. We will of course consider all the events pitched, and we absolutely can’t wait to read them!
