Writer advice chats

At the festival, there will be a number of 20-minute advice & feedback 1 to 1 sessions with the writers and professionals listed below (and possibly others, so watch this space). Different writers will have different time slots available and there will be a sign-up sheet when you arrive to register. Some sessions will be during breaks, or while workshops are running, so do bear that in mind when looking at the time you book. You can bring a poem, or a page of something you’re working on too (although it’s not essential). Time will be short so do have a think about what you want to chat about or find out – Slots limited.
