January 19 – Everyone Has a Story (Midsumma panel discussion)
We are gathering some of our favourite writers to chat about what goes on behind the scenes in creating the books we love. Join us for this riveting and compelling panel discussion, exploring and celebrating queer culture, experience and identity.
Free event at Newport community hub but bookings required.
This is with Nevo Zisin, Bobuq Sayed and CS Pacat.
January 22 – Rapid Fire
Rapid Fire’s recipe for success is simple: give 12 writers 6 minutes each, draw the order from a hat and ensure that merciless technicians are on hand to turn off the microphone if readers go over time. This formula provides the perfect platform for writers to refine, condense and edit a story, while providing ample time to display their literary brilliance. It is a win for writers and audiences alike.
January 28 – the YA Room’s YA Day
