Writers & Artists Yearbook Event
I've got a new, freelance, part-time job working as the Children's and YA Events Manager for the events team at the Writers & Artists Yearbook which forms part of Bloomsbury Publishing. The yearbook is the bible for all writers and illustrators at every stage of their careers and it's a total privilege and honour to be working with such a fantastic group of people.
Not only is the team amazing but I'm working on putting together an fantastic festival that runs online over the last weekend in March. The graphic on this blog shows the incredible line-up of talent that we have taking part.
If you're reading this as a writer or illustrator for children then I highly recommend buying a ticket for this amazing weekend. Everything will be recorded, so if you can't make the weekend do still consider the weekend pass. I guarantee it will be money well spent on your career.
All the information and how to get a ticket is here: Children's Writers and Illustrators Festival 2023
When you wake up to stunning views, are surrounded by like minded people, laugh until your belly aches, play improv drama games, make clay sculptures, do writing exercises, explore the countryside, eat glorious food, breathe clean air, talk children's books, listen to readings, join in-depth discussions and share thoughts and opinions whilst feeling safe then you know you're on a writing retreat.
I've just returned, feeling refreshed, reassured, comforted, supported and ready to go. Thank you Scattered Authors Society and to the wonderful Folly Farm Centre for such an amazing and inspiring few days.
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
