It’s been full on crazy as the end of the
United Kingdom school year hurtles towards me so this post will be quick & dirty, lickety split blurty:
- I went to the Winchester Writers’ Festival which was wonderful. I attended some great sessions and received helpful feedback on Up She Rises during one to ones with literary agents. I met writing friends from social media in person and made new ones. How inspired was I by the keynote speaker Meg Rosoff? This much:
- National Flash Fiction Day 2016 took place on Saturday 25th June. I’ve already blogged about the anthology (which you can still buy here) but there are some mighty fine flash fiction stories waiting to be read on the NFFD blog too.
- The name drawn in my contest to win a copy of A Box Of Stars Beneath The Bed was Mary Tod, Queen of Historical Fiction. Congratulations! Mary’s blog A Writer of History is well worth a visit so do stop by.
- Finally, since I won’t be posting on Friday, Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian family and friends. What a great country I don’t live in anymore…
