Putting yourself out there 22nd November, 7pm Glen Mhor Hotel, Inverness
To celebrate Book Week Scotland, Highland Literary Salon are holding a special event which aims to encourage local writers to put themselves and their work forward and aim high. There will be plenty of opportunity to look at traditional and non-traditional ways of approaching publication, and at what sort of support might be available.
I've been invited to join the panel to talk about my route to publication - through winning the Sunday Mail Fiction Prize in 2015 - and the other panel members will be Helen Sedgwick, who received a New Writers Award in 2012 which led to publication of her debut novel The Comet Seekers earlier this year, and Lynsey Rogers, Writer Development Co-ordinator at Scottish Book Trust. Author Caroline Deacon will be chairing the event and keeping us in order, and all are welcome - you don't have to be a member of the Salon, although if you're a local writer it could be worth investigating what else the Salon does.
The event is free of charge, so why not join us? Hope to see you there!
