The Pen Factor is the writing competition which takes place within the annual Writing in a Digital Age Literary Conference.  It is open to all writers attending the conference who currently do not have their work in print with a commercial publishing house.

In an exciting new development, this year KWL is sponsoring the Pen Factor for the first time.

The winner will benefit from:

  • A year’s talent support from TLC
  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize will receive Kobo e-reader and professional photo shoot session
  • A further twelve writers shortlisted will win the chance to pitch directly to literary agents

Piers Bearne author photo‘TLC’s 2013 conference was a seminal moment for me. It was a rich programme, which I used to put together my marketing plan for my novel, The Bitter Trade, and impressed upon me of the importance of getting the manuscript edited to the highest standard. I made lots of great connections and some new friends, and since the Conference I have had amazing access to TLC’s mentoring and training events.  It’s terrific that this year Kobo are sponsoring the Pen Factor winners. This is a must-attend.’  Piers Bearne, Winner of Pen Factor 2013
