Guernsey Literary Festival – what a feast!
Thank you to the organisers of the fabulous Guernsey Literary Festival 2012! To find myself in the company of Marina Lewycka (excellent workshop – and she even looked at some of my work!), to be able to ask Louis de Bernieres questions (so how did he cope with the stuff that gave me nightmares in his masterpiece Birds without Wings?), to find out about historic fiction and crime fiction writing from Matthew Hall and William Ryan, to discuss short stories with Chuma Nwokolo, to be impressed by fantastic poetry, it was simply writers and readers paradise! Roll on May 2014 for the next festival!
