Hurrah! It’s my turn up on the UK Meet Blog, with the fourth thrilling instalment of the UK Meet organisers’ campfire tale!
Here’s Liam’s introduction to it all:
"This is a blog story the five Spice Girls organisers of UK Meet are writing together. I shamelessly stole this idea from the Festival of Romance where they explained it was taken from the tradition of telling stories around a camp fire. This may be a mess as we all write very differently, but I’m hoping it’s a bit of fun. Do please share this by RTing, facebooking, blogging to spread the word to other writers and readers about UK Meet 2014 in Bristol."
