Me again, here to tell you that York Festival of Writing tickets are on sale. We've got some really exciting sessions planned, and I can EXCLUSIVELY give you a peek into some titles... Using History to Inform Fiction, Structuring a Memoir, Mastering The Unlikeable Character, The Quick And Dirty First Draft, How to Build a Bestseller and one I'm VERY excited for: Make Your Characters Eat Something. These are just a few of 70+ one and two hour workshops, as well as mini-courses we have on offer during the weekend.
Now, I'm feeling a bit nervous about a big in-person event, and you may well be too. It's a big deal after so many months watching things online or at a distance. I've factored in half an hour between each session where you can get some fresh air or grab a cuppa. I've also factored in lots of time on the Saturday afternoon to unwind after an intense day before the gala dinner. Through the weekend there will be a quiet reading/writing/bookshop area where you can chill if it all feels a bit too much. For those who love a stretch in the morning, there will be daily yoga and meditation sessions to get you in a good headspace and ready for the day.
I'll be here all afternoon if you'd like to ask any questions about the Festival :)
