Joanna Glan - AuthorFrances Quinn - Author

Join Joanna Glen and Frances Quinn in conversation, a writer of contemporary fiction chatting to a writer of historical fiction about how they do what they do.

Perhaps you’ve read and enjoyed Frances Quinn’s historical novels – The Smallest Man and That Bonesetter Woman. Or Joanna Glen’s contemporary novels – The Other Half of Augusta Hope, All My Mothers and Maybe, Perhaps, Possibly.

Both authors will lift the lid on how they go about building a fictional world in their novels, with Joanna focusing on the creation of vivid settings – southern Spanish cities, Norwegian fords, creeks, islands and stormy seas – and Frances revealing how she brings different eras – from the turmoil of 17th century England to the glamour and luxury of the Edwardian country house – to life. They’ll be chatting methodology and sharing secrets, and of course answering any questions you may have about the writing process and the writing life.

There will be a workshop on the same theme the following Saturday, where more practical guidance will be given to aspiring writers at any level or stage in the writing process, whether you are an interested reader, just starting to put pen to paper, or a little further along. Do come along to both sessions! More info here

Age: 14+

Signed copies of Joanna and Frances books will be available to purchase on the day.
