About Us

Celebrating women's stories

The Edinburgh Women's Fiction Festival is a new literary festival celebrating writing for, by, and about women. We are an inclusive event and welcome everyone who finds joy in reading women's stories - commercial, romance, historical, literary, book club and beyond.


Our festival showcases authors of genres that are often overlooked, and our aim is to give readers the opportunity to connect with their favourite writers.
