Stafford Publishers work with artists, performers and story tellers to bring regular themed Literary events. These opportunities give authors time to share their work with an audience and to help broaden their network and meet other authors and artists.
If you are a published author and are interested in taking part in one of our events, then send your interest via our contact form.
We look forward to meeting you.
