As writers we all have the opportunity of attending some outstanding events during the course of the year. For some it may be a ‘jolly’ and for others a networking opportunity and a chance to mix with ‘our own’. There are courses available, parties, seminars and several other activities. This month each of our bloggers will give you an insight into their experience or take on one of these. Read them all or pick the ones that interest you (We hope you will read them all). The schedule is as follows:
On 7th April Natalie Kleinman will share her impressions of the glittering Bubbly & Bites evening which took place in March to present the annual Romantic Novelists’ Association RoNA awards.
13th April finds Elaine Roberts reporting on the Hove Book Festival in its inaugural year. It should be interesting to find how they format the occasion and how it compares with other writer events.
On 17th April Francesca Capaldi Burgess will be telling us about her visit to Earls Court. The London Book Fair is a huge event taking place over three days, and this will be the fifth year she has attended. Comfortable shoes are the order of the day.
On 23rd April Elaine Everest will be talking about the Romantic Novelists’ Association Annual Conference. What new delegates can experience and how best to prepare for this busy weekend.
Finally this month…
On 27th April Viv Hampshire will reminisce about her eleven years’ experience of the wonderful Writers’ Holiday at Caerleon. Friends made; lessons learned. Sadly last summer was the last time this annual event will be held in Caerleon, but worry not, fellow scribes. The venue may have changed but the ethos, I’m sure, will remain the same.
Join us during April to share our observations on all of these events, and we hope you will give us feedback of your own experiences. It looks like being an interesting month on WriteMindsWritePlace.
