Feeling all festivalled out? There’s another 6 days to go!

All tuckered out after the first week? Come on, there’s another 6 days of events to go. Rally yourselves. When it’s over you’ll miss us!

We begin at 11am with a McStory. Today it’s Bring your Befuddled Zxeardks by Garry Stanton

At 12 noon we get the weather from Derek. Or Shuggie. Or Derek. You never can tell with sheep.  They’re like the weather in that respect.

At 12.30 we lunch with an Author. Today Jan Needle tells us about his scattergun approach.

At 2pm Sci-Fi residency. David Wailing, author of the amazing Auto Series is with us all week talking about things sci-fi. Today he’s looking at detectives in science fiction.

At 3pm Cally Phillips continues with her drama (retrospective) residency. Today she looks at J.M.Barrie, the Admirable Crichton and her 100th anniversary adaptation ‘Down the Line.’ There is also another scene of We Wove A Web in Childhood to watch. And you can download the entire performance as an enhanced ebook from THE GOODY BAG if you don’t have the patience to watch scene by scene.

At 4pm Kathleen Jones  Life Writing workshops. Today it’s workshop 5 which looks at creating characters.  Even if you aren’t handing in ‘homework’ you can still attend the workshop!

At 5pm Our Advocacy residency for Week Two continues with a look at the first Guerrilla MIdgie publication, ‘A Week with No Labels.’

At 6pm we  continue our week long exploration of the relationship between the author and narrator.  Today Cally poses a series of questions to (live) author Dan Holloway.

At 7pm we’re still seeing all the ways to make crime pay, with our resident Crime Writer Chris Longmuir. Today she’s delving into dark crime fiction, including ‘noir.’

At 8pm we explore some ‘Market Choices.’  We are always being told that marketing is key. Here are a few ‘beyond the margins’ ways that authors have  tried to take their little piggies  to market!  Tonight we welcome Mike Schneider.

At 9pm we continue our series of Late Launches where authors tell you about their recent releases. Tonight, proving he is still very alive, Dan Holloway talks about his book written in numbers: Evie and Guy.

At 10pm Roz Morris picks another Undercover Soundtrack. Tonight we are with author Joni Rodgers

And easing you into the night at 11pm Jian Qiu Huang engages you with another Conversation with the Universe.  Tonight he offers you some thoughts on ‘letting go.’
