Foyles, 15:40-16:20 - Choose your weapons wisely: the best way to defeat your demons
“Stick it with the pointy end” sums this one up. But some points are better than others, which our panellists will prove by the end of their (mostly) non-violent debate.

The Phoenix 16:40-18:00 - Speed Writing-Advice
Attendees will break into small groups of 3-5 and have the opportunity to sit round a table and discuss any aspects of their novel, or the writing process with some of their favourite authors. Every 20 minutes a bell will ring and the author you get to speak to will be switched.

Saturday, November 5th, 2017  1:00-5:00pm

Foyles, 13:00-13:40 - How it all began: Writing, Publishing & Getting an Agent

Our panellists discuss their early careers, rejections, the need for perseverance and their ultimate success. They’ll share the differences between their expectations and the reality of what it really takes to get from that first word to that first yes.
