Announcing BlogFest 2014! And a cracking ticket offer...

BF 650

It's that time again! BlogFest 2014 has officially landed. Our glittering celebration of sharp writing and big ideas will be held at Kings Place on Saturday 8th November. 

Expect more brilliant, brain-bending speakers, spot-on advice, great sponsors and YOU – the best bloggers in the business. *And* to get you in the mood, we've got a ruddy brilliant offer for you – we’re selling Early Bird tickets until Sunday 24th August, priced at just £75.

Those of you who came last year will know what a super day it is, and we're very excited for what we've got planned this year – as well as inspiring keynotes, we'll have skill-sharing round-tablesmasterclasses (think getting to grips with the Dark Arts of virality and working on your video skills) and thought-provoking panel discussions on everything from mastering comic timing to how writing can change the world. 

There will also be plenty of opportunities to connect with fellow bloggers and impressive sponsors – and we’re hoping to out-do ourselves on the goody bag and gin front!

So, whether you're a gifted newbie or a seasoned hand - or a non-blogger who just wants to take part in some cracking discussions and debates - join us! There's plenty of info below on last year's BlogFest to whet your appetite.
