John O'Groats to Land's End . . .

(In case you don't know that means going from the most northerly point on mainland Britain (in Scotland) to the very southernmost spot at the end of Cornwall)

Well, perhaps not, but it almost seems like it. I spent yesterday organising the updates for myweb site and one of the things I had to fo was to revise and bring up to date my Events page. I've had some comments in the past from writers wishing that I might do a workshop or a coure closer to where they live- with Scotland particularly being the place that was missing out the most. But yesterday as I listed the events coming up between now and next November, I realised that I will be travelling the length and breadth of the country and hopefully if you're interested you will find a course or at the very least a talk that will be within your reach.

So I thought I'd give you some advance warning on these so that you can look out for the ones that are going to be closest to you - sorry to everyone in America and Australia and all other countries. But there's only one of me and I'm stretched pretty tightly as it is!

Wow Kate, what a busy schedule! And you have to fit in writing books into the year as well?

Will definitely see you at the RNA Conference in Greenwich. Seeing as I live there, no excuse not to wander ten minutes down the road for it.

Hi Kate - if you're taking requests for say ... 2012, please do consider South Africa. We'll even try to provide sunshine!

Anne McAllister said...

So, um, where's the conference at Land's End? I keep hoping.

Wow Kate you really are busy in 2010. Being in Ireland I don't think I'll make any of your classes, but am consoling myself by reading and re-reading (and taking notes) your excellent 12 steps again.
