I’m starting this thread for anyone who signed up after the book fest talk last night, which was a lot of fun. Two or three people were artists looking for writers and I told them to sign up to the Creative forums, which can be accessed here from the main page.
Also, a big thanks to anyone who came along last night. A big thrill for me was seeing my old English teacher Helen Gilliland, whom I hadn’t seen since I was fifteen or so. Thirty years on (!) and she looks identical. It was quite shocking. Such a great night where literally about 2 litres of Book Festival red wine was consumed before we even hit the pub.
