Coming Up

The start to a new year made me look forward and plan - and it was quite amazing to see what's already booked as coming up for me in 2010.

As some of these events - most of them - are already taking bookings and I'll soon be starting with the first of them, I thought I'd do a quick summary of just what's happening in the way of workshops and talks this year

So here goes -

This first one isn't fully confirmed yet but it's the first chronologically so -
I've been asked to do a workshop on the writing romance - based on the 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance - in Hull Central Library. I've just heard it will be on 8th February but I'm not sure yet if it's morning or afternoon.

An Evening With Kate Walker
15th February Sheffield Central Library

I will be running a couple of events/seminars on romance writing organised by Highlands and Islands Arts (http://www.hi-arts.co.uk/).

More details when I get them - or from HI Arts

Event: a two day residential course on Writing Romance held in the beautiful surroundings of New Place Shirrell Heath, Southampton.

I've been having trouble with the RT web site - I will put the full details on my web site as soon as I get this sorted out.
NEWS - apparently the web site for this event has been lost and until the organisers can get things sorted out, the details of this course can be found here:

That'll keep me busy - I hope to meet up with old friends and make new ones at many of these events -
That means you Rachael, Brenda, Rachel , Caroline . . .
