Newcastle Writers Festival 20-22 March

Newcastle is about to experience a long weekend full of talented and emerging writers. I personally can’t wait to be there and present with members of my writing group Aidan Walsh, Jessie Ansons and Margaret Jackson. Will will be taking you on a journey from Hobby to Publication and having some fun along the way. Look out for our session The Next Level, it’s free and we would love to see you there.
Regards, Maree
