Sozopol Fiction Seminars

The Sozopol Fiction Seminars are held in historic Sozopol, Bulgaria.

An advanced discussion among writers of fiction in Bulgarian and English, this gathering hosts fiction writers from Bulgaria and from English-speaking countries, including but not limited to the U.S. and the U.K. All participants are selected on a competitive basis.

For three intense days, the participating writers are given the opportunity to explore their craft through mutual exchange under the guidance of one English-speaking and one Bulgarian fiction writer. 

In addition to the morning workshops, the programme includes special guest lectures, one-on-one consultations, readings and informal roundtables on various issues from the lifecycle of the book, including how to work with agents, editors, translators, and publishers.
