The 2019 festival sees the launch of the new IRON Proof Editorial Service where for a reasonable fee authors can submit their prose (short stories, novels) or poetry collections for in depth critical appraisal by professional writers associated with the IRON stable. Book your initial 15minutes chat with one of three of our main assessors. - Kitty Fitzgerald (prose), Carol Clewlow (prose), Peter Mortimer (poetry). These initial sessions are FREE but available only with the purchase of at least one ticket to a paid festival event. Please book well in advance as spaces are limited. See the wondrous IRON House into the bargain. No booking fee for this event, but participants need also to contact IRON Press on 0191 2531901 to book a specific time and editor.
