On Saturday, 9 March 2013, I appeared as part of H9 ‘New Voices’ with Beatrice Hitchman (Petite Mort) and Anthea Nicholson (The Banner of the Passing Clouds). It took place in the Guildhall ‘Salon’ and was chaired by Christopher Cook. Because it was a shared event with a mutually supportive atmosphere, it quickly became one of my favourites that I’ve done. There was a bit of post-talk drinkies in the pub after and plenty of writer chat with some graduates of the Bath Spa MA.
Hats off to Bath Literary Festival for running a slick operation and being very author-friendly, especially the volunteers who greet you, offer you tea and shepherd you about. Even more special is the number of readers turning out in force to hear talks, including ours.
Now I understand why it’s one of the top festivals in the country. K x
