Event description

Description

As part of The Word’s Write Festival, author of ‘The Shipyard Girls’ saga series, Nancy Revell talks about what she calls her ‘Olympian leap’ from journalist to novelist.

After nearly two decades of writing hard-hitting news stories and in-depth features for the national press, Nancy found herself making the ‘exciting but equally terrifying’ transition to first time novelist.

‘One minute I was knocking on strangers’ doors, chasing exclusive stories, turning copy around in break neck speed, and trying my hardest not to go over the usual 1,200 word count - to suddenly being ‘acquired’ by a major publishing house to write 100,000 words of pure fiction - in less than six months!’
