At the festival, there will be a number of 20 minute advice 1 to 1 sessions with the writers and professionals listed below. Different people will have different time available and there will be a sign up sheet when you arrive to register. Some sessions will be during breaks, and while workshops are running, so do bear that in mind when looking at the times you book. You can bring a poem or a page or two of something you’re working on too (although it’s not essential), but time will be short so don’t bring 100 chapters! 🙂 – Slots limited!

Desiree Reynolds – novelist / short story / editor

You may also grab other writers milling around in the breaks but they might not have much time so be aware that if you want more time, consider signing up with someone.
