The Festival

The Women's Fiction Festival is  a literary festival – the only one in Europe dedicated to women's fiction and with this particular formula, full of interesting and exciting events, where readers meet their favourite authors and writers get a chance to interact with their reading public and promote their books. We organize book presentations, debates, concerts , parties, happy hours, book signings, readings in the delightful squares and palazzi of Matera, all organized with the light touch and charm that is our hallmark.

The Festival includes:

•The writers' conference

•Master Classes held by best- selling authors on aspects of the craft of writing fiction

•Briefings for Thriller Writers – seminars held by crime experts for those writing mysteries and thrillers

•Creative writing labs (creative writing, scriptwriting, short-story writing, therapeutic writing)

•A translation competition (for students of a number of university courses in literary translation)

•Events and readings with best-selling authors

•The 'La Baccante' Literary Prize
