Bournemouth Writing Festival — I’m Hosting an Event!

Find out more about the little role I’m playing in the first ever Bournemouth Writing Festival in a couple of months…

Last year, I went to a book launch that Bournemouth University hosted. It was for a series of anthologies made up of entries from the 2022 Bournemouth Writing Prize; two of them feature my quirky short story Sunday on the Boulevard with My Pet Lobster. Here, I became aware of an upcoming event, namely the Bournemouth Writing Festival.

At first, I was only planning to attend the event. But the more I thought about it, the more I began to convince myself to reach out to the organisers. Long story short and a series of emails later, I signed up to volunteer. For what, exactly? They allowed me to host what they’re calling a Genre Breakfast (or Genre Meet-Up).

In other words, networking events for other local authors who specialise in a genre. My event, taking place on Sunday 23rd April, is specifically for historical fiction writers.

So, for the benefit of any such writers (or any who aspire to write historical fiction), here’s some important info:

Historical Fiction Genre Breakfast

Date and time: Sunday 23rd April, 09.00

Location: South Coast Coffee, Richmond Hill, Bournemouth

My event is one of six going on as part of Bournemouth Writing Festival that morning. See below for all the breakfasts happening that morning:

I’d personally love to meet like-minded historical fiction writers based in the Bournemouth and Poole area. To hear about what drew you to historical writing and what period(s) fascinate you the most. If this sounds like you, please RSVP via the buttons below.

Bournemouth Writing Festival will run on 21st-23rd April 2023.
