Mumsnet BlogFest 2013
Saturday, November 9, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
We're thrilled to announce BlogFest '13 – a chance to celebrate sharp writing and big ideas, in the company of some of the most talented writers and bloggers around. Join us on Saturday, 9th November at the suitably swish Kings Place, in central London.
We couldn't be more excited that the fabulous Jo Brand- comedian, actor, author and reluctant national treasure - will be giving a keynote speech. Among those squaring up to the big issues throughout the day are: all-round good egg Richard Bacon, Stella Creasy MP, roguish commentator Toby Young, feminist icon Charlotte Raven and whip-smart blogger Glosswitch. We'll hear from the lovely Tim Dowling, and the very wise Prof Tanya Byron - plus campaigners A Girl Called Jack and Laura Bates of Everyday Sexism. Authors Lionel Shriver and AL Kennedy will help brush up your writing skills - and a host of blogging dynamos will share their hard-earned knowledge.
So, whether you're a talented newbie, a seasoned hand, or just want to take part in some great discussions and debate, join us for a high-octane programme, jam-packed with fabulous speakers, gripping panel sessions and spot-on advice - to help you get the most from what you post. Book now - but hurry, last year tickets sold out in three weeks!

We're very excited that Mumsnet BlogFest – our one day event celebrating the very best of blogging – is back for its second year. Following feedback from those who attended last year's fabulous event and the helpful comments from the Mumsnet Bloggers Network, we’ve crafted the day to include some of your favourite writers, experts on the craft and techniques of blogging and the opportunity to meet and get to know your fellow bloggers.
Some sessions will be programmed so that all delegates can attend, others will be offered as breakouts, so you can select which session is of most interest to you. In addition, our team of experts will be on hand in the Blog Clinic to offer one-to-one advice during the day on everything you need to know about making the most of your blog. There will be the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers during each session, but if you’d prefer more tailored advice to a specific query, then please visit the Blog Clinic.
We’ve done our best to programme Blogfest at a time that’s convenient for you – avoiding school holidays, and hoping that holding it on a Saturday may alleviate some childcare issues. For any queries about the event, please visit the FAQ page
