The Press Christchurch Writers Festival – Here I come!

CoverI too have been lucky enough to be selected to attend the Press Christchurch Writers Festival. I’ve even changed my gravatar. I’m going to see one of my favourite authors – Barbara Trapidospeaking about her latest novel Sex and Stravinsky. It reminded me a little of her Travelling hornplayer in its style where coincidences abound in the run-up to the finish. Trapido also features in Good stories.

If you want to know more about Barbara Trapido, try British Council: Contemporary Writers  for a profile. This gives biographical information and critique her books up to Frankie and Stankie so is a bit outdated. Or best of all check out Trapido’s writing room on The Guardian’s website.

Is anyone else hoping to catch Barbara at The Press Christchurch Writers Festival?

    Loved the link to the Writer’s Room. Barbara Trapido’s comments are very inspiring. Waking at 3am to write is a great idea. One could get writing without any distractions or pressing jobs that need doing. 3am though – hmmm. I’ll need a very loud alarm clock!
