A new event to support writers, is coming to Exeter this autumn.
We chatted to the founder of Novel Nights, Grace Palmer.
What’s in the programme?
Debut novelist and creative writing lecturer, Ben Smith is our first guest author on October 21st at Exeter Phoenix. He’ll
discuss how writers can use landscape and setting in fiction so it’s more than a mere backdrop to plot.
Ben’s debut novel, Doggerland, is a compelling tale of loneliness and survival, archaeological remains and rusting turbines, set against the backdrop of a water-filled landscape. Ben lectures in creative writing at Plymouth University specialising in environmental literature.
How can writers get involved?
Exeter Writer Treasurer, Elizabeth Ducie, has been very busy lately. She has finally finished her series of manuals on business skills for writers. Elizabeth strongly believes anyone who writes professionally needs the skills to run a small business in addition to their creative abilities.
