Whether you’re looking for some impartial feedback on an extract of work or just have some specific questions you’d like answered, why not book yourself into our writers’ clinic for a 30-minute one-to-one with author Karen Campbell? Places are limited. Sessions will take place in person in Wigtown or online by arrangement. If you’d like to submit an extract of work for Karen’s feedback, please limit this to 500 words or a side of A4 and submit it to isla@wigtownbookfestival.com at least a week in advance of your session.
