A big thank you to the organizers of the Hot Air Literary Festival for inviting me along yesterday. I had a wonderful time: the setting was lovely, and really reflected Stoke. It was a real privilege to listen to Nick Hornby and to share a stage with some amazing poets.
A thank you also to The Sentinel for the Too Write Short Story Competition. I was overwhelmed to have been chosen for the winner, and it was fantastic to listen to Carol Ann Duffy, and even shake her hand!!!
I’m looking forward to seeing Meg Rosoff later, I’m sure today will be as much of a success.
