Just a short post to appeal to all my fellow UK-based writers! Do I have your attention? Good!
Last November I attended an event called Alt.Fiction in Derby (which is occurring again this November). This was organised by Writing East Midlands (WEM) and headed by a group of lovely, friendly people who work tirelessly to promote literary work, both accomplished and upcoming.
They set up regular events that take place in numerous locations – ranging from workshops, readings, writing weekends in hotels, etc. at reasonable prices for what they are! 🙂
I am thinking of attending the Alt.Fiction – Other Worlds event this November again but we shall see. Anyone who wants to come along are more than welcome – just have a look at http://www.derbyquad.co.uk nearer the time to pre-book your tickets.
