By the time you read this I’ll be on my way to Manchester. I’m teaching short story workshops with Gaynor Davies and Jane Wenham Jones at the Woman’s Weekly Live Show. Click on the link for more details of the programme and how to get tickets. Last year we did the same thing and it was fabulous. We’re teaching workshops between 10.00 and 4.00 Thurday 12th, Friday 13th (oo-er) and Saturday 14th September. Jane is doing How to Kick Start Your Writing, Gaynor is doing Writing Short Stories and Serials for Woman’s Weekly and I’m doing 21st Century Romance – Writing with Passion. We are also doing one to ones – so you can bring your stories along for a (brief) critique.
So, if you do happen to be in the vicinity of Event City Manchester on any of the three days, please pop by and say hello. It will be great to see you.
It’s a fabulous show, plenty to see and do from cookery demonstrations to fashion displays.
Oh, and by the way, if you fancy reading one of my stories, writtten especially for Woman’s Weekly, I have two in the current issue (September – issue 9) of the Woman’s Weekly Fiction Special. (not the one pictured). On sale now. It’s the one that mentions Woman’s Weekly Live on the cover at the top.
