New year, New book, New writers events

2020 looks like it’s going to be a busy year. From 28th February to 1st March I shall be hosting a Writer’s Weekend in Southport, Merseyside in a lovely hotel on Albert Road. It begins Friday evening and ends Sunday lunch time. If you have a cherished dream to be a writer or you need a little direction, then this is the course for you. In an informal friendly atmosphere you will discover how and where to find your markets, how to present a manuscript, where to get your ideas from and a host of other things. I’ll even show you how to kick-start your memoir in a simple and enjoyable way! Details of the venue and booking is on  I shall look forward to meeting you there!

Also in March and by popular demand, I shall be hosting another Writer’s Day in Angmering West Sussex. Once again it will be in St Margaret’s church hall, Angmering on Saturday March 28th 9.30-3pm and the day is to raise funds for the charity Give Gracie a Voice. Please bring your own lunch but teas and coffees will be available. To book a place contact  Cost is £20 in advance or £25 on the door on the day.
