One-day writing conference in Hertfordshire


If you’re a writer, or aspiring writer, in reach of the University of Hertfordshire, there’s an excellent one-day writing conference coming up on Saturday 29th March 2014. Organised by VWC (the writers’ circle I belong to) and now in its seventh year, Get Writing Day is a full day of workshops, pitching sessions, talks, panels, one-to-ones and a networking lunch.

The guest speakers comprise approximately twenty-five industry professionals – novelists, playwrights, agents, editors, creative writing teachers, television and radio scriptwriters, producers and directors, including Bafta nominated screenwriter and author of the bestselling Jenny Cooper crime series, M.R. Hall, and historical thriller writer William Ryan, author of the widely acclaimed Captain Korolev novels. They’ll be giving a 2-hour version of their Guardian workshop on Constructing Character and Plot, the full-day version of which I’m told would set you back around £700!

Tickets start at the amazingly low price of only £30, but better hurry – bookings will close soon!

Hope to see you there! Open-mouthed smile

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:
