Come along to the National Young Writers Festival!

Monday, September 11, 2017

I'm excited to be attending the National Young Writers Festival in Newcastle later this month. The festival runs from September 28 to October 1 and I'm looking forward to attending lots of events! I'll be appearing on two panels and a roundtable (all free!) so do come along and say hi if you live nearby!
