Event Information

David's Bookshop will Host a Writing/Publishing Evening with Author, Nell Stevens and Writers' & Artists' Yearbook 2017 Editor, Alysoun Owen

Thursday 14 September 2017
7:30

This evening was designed with the would-be published author in mind.  Come and hear the latest publishing tips and how to best tackle writing a book.  Apparently, there is a book in each of us, so please come along and hear how to write and publish it.

Nell Stevens: When Nell Stevens was given the opportunity to spend three months in a location of her choice in order to write her novel, she was determined to rid herself of all distractions. So Nell decided to travel to Bleaker Island (official population: two) in the Falklands where she would write 2,500 words a day. Hilariously funny, painfully honest, and beautifully observed, Bleaker House is part memoir, part travelogue, part story collection. It is an exploration of the narrow spaces between real life and fiction and, in the end, a book about failing to write a novel, but finally becoming a writer.

Alysoun Owen is the editor of Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook 2017. With all 4,500 listings completely updated and enhanced every year, Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook holds a mirror up to the publishing world. This barometer of industry trends is a guide for would-be writers while providing information on a huge range of topics including copyright, finance, manuscript submission, e-publishing, self-publishing, agents, publishers, festivals, prizes and awards.

Tickets cost will £6 and will include discounts on both books on the evening. Tickets are available by calling in or by ringing the shop on 01462684631.
