Ahoy Mates! With a hat tip to the ‘wooden walls of England’ on St George’s Day, we’re happy to launch the workshop programme by flagging up a seafaring “workshop” break-out talk scheduled for the Conference.
Nautical authors Linda Collison, Margaret Muir, Helen Hollick and (hopefully) Richard Spilman and Alaric Bond will be at The Captain’s Table for a general discussion on the attraction of Nautical Fiction, provisionally entitled “Ships Ahoy: The joys and challenges of writing nautical fiction”. This session weighs anchor at 11:30 on Saturday 29th September.
Full details of this and other swell sessions will be announced very soon. We’re on course for a very exciting programme that is choc-a-block with an extensive array of topics for landlubbers too!
(All nautical puns in this post are rudder frivolity).
