Guest Speaking


This morning I revisited my old haunts at the University of Southampton, where I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at one of Rebecca Smith’s writing workshops. I sometimes feel a little apprehensive when it comes to public speaking but the students – and Rebecca – were wonderful, asking lots of questions and delving into the recesses of my mind. We talked about a variety of subjects, from writing LYNNWOOD to finding a publisher, and it felt great to discuss my experiences with the group. A big thank you to Rebecca for organising the morning and to those who attended. It was a pleasure to chat with you all – old faces and new!

      Cheers, Karen. Hope your own Creative Writing course is going well!

    Congrats. I think it’s difficult for all writers to stand up and talk about our work and craft, since, by nature, we like to hole up in little places and tell stories to ourselves.

      Thanks, Hunter. I know that feeling. Talking to large groups doesn’t come naturally to me but I had a really great time, and was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
