Gloucester Writers Festival 2012

The Gloucester Writers Festival is just around the corner – May 4-6 as a matter of fact.

Lindy Dupree and The Gloucester Bookshop are delighted to invite readers and writers to a weekend of stimulating and inspirational workshops, discussions & conversations.

Workshops include a Fiction Essentials masterclass, Getting Published and The Art of the Poem.

There will also be panels on Writing for Children, Speculative Fiction, Travel Writing and the all important pitching session with publishers.

You can read all about the exciting programme here:

I am thrilled to be on a panel with Lisa Walker –

Author of Liar Bird (Harper Collins)

Our topic:     Chicklit does not mean dumblit

It most certainly does not – Chicklit is a genre that is attracting millions of female (and male) readers around the world to buy its books and Lisa and I  will be chatting about why we believe this is so.

If you’re in the area, we’d love you to come along and join in the discussion.

In the meantime, any thoughts?
