The look says it all. Another successful event! This photo was taken by Peter Robinson of Postives from Negatives at this month’s Pure Fiction, the literary event I run with Jennifer C Wilson and Sandy Chadwin.
Like The A-Team’s Hannibal I love it when a plan comes together. I spend a great deal of time organising workshops and live literary/musical events. Most of these events involve collaborating with others, usually my friends Sandy Chadwin and Jennifer C Wilson. In the past month or so we’ve led writing workshops in a school and with a local guide group, a poetry appreciation session in a local care home plus Pure Fiction and The North Tyneside Writers’ Circle.
This time next week I’ll be gearing up to host the launch of Jennifer’s second novel, Kindred Spirits: Royal Mile and the following weekend I’ll be involved in the IRON in the Soul festival . The weekend after that Sandy and I will host another North Tyneside Writers’ Circle. I rely on and work with Jennifer and Sandy on a weekly basis.
For most of 2017 we’ve been organising and hosting events and then throwing ideas at each other without a chance to sit down and have a chat! I thought I’d use this blog as an excuse to say thank you to them both. The A-Team lives on in Whitley Bay!
