RNA Author Showcase – Free author talks & workshops

July 8, 2014


If you’re in the Telford (Shropshire/West Midlands) area on Thursday afternoon, we’d love to see you at any or all of these FREE Author events which are being run at Wellington Library by the Romantic Novelists Association.

The events are part of the RNA Author Showcase which is being held in association with Telford & Wrekin Council and Waterstones.

From 3-4pm, I’m joining the Tea & Tales of Yesterday & Today reader event with Hazel Gaynor, Gwen Kirkwood, Kate Long, Mary Nichols and Alison Sherlock

Enjoy reading about Families, relationships, history and love? In the great tradition of Afternoon Tea, join these popular authors for a discussion about the novels you love and the stories you want to read.
Refreshments will be provided.
Please book a free place by contacting Wellington Library (01952) 382990.

Then, from 4-5pm, I’m helping to host Taking It Further – A Writers’ Workshop for YAs with Kate Johnson and Alison Sherlock

Enjoy writing stories, keeping a diary, contributing to magazines? Let’s help you do more… this workshop for teens and young adults has an emphasis on answering questions, tackling problems and looking forward.
Please bring along samples of your work.
Suitable for age 14 and above.

If you love talking about books or want to find out more about getting into writing, you’ll be very welcome.

The events are linked to the RNA Conference which is being held at Harper Adams University this weekend. The Conference is the major gathering for RNA members where we all get together to hone our writing techniques and learn about the latest trends in romantic fiction. It’s all work, work, work – of course – which reminds me, I need to decide what to wear for the Gala Dinner on Saturday night. I’m driving home after so I won’t be drinking the bar dry, which I understand happened at one event – or maybe that’s an urban myth…

There’s no wine, sadly, only afternoon tea at the reader events but don’t let that put you off!

All the details are here:
