Event description

Description

Join author and journalist Marianne Kavanagh for an inspiring talk on the pleasure of writing. Whether you’re writing a diary, a memoir or a novel, whether you’re writing as a hobby or for publication, it’s important to hold on to the joy of the process itself – that is, the pleasure of writing. So much gets in the way (earning a living, family commitments, self-doubt, publishing the work itself) that we sometimes forget why we started in the first place. A talk that reminds us why and how we try to craft clear, rhythmic, memorable prose, with examples from classic and contemporary fiction.

Marianne Kavanagh has worked for a number of titles, including Marie Claire and the Telegraph, and has written features for a wide variety of magazines, newspapers and websites. Her first two novels, romantic comedies, were translated into eight languages and sold all over the world. Her third novel Should You Ask Me, set in 1944, won critical praise (“Kavanagh is a perceptive and vivid writer and this tale of ordinary lives transformed by extraordinary events has so much period atmosphere, you can practically hear the air-raid sirens” Daily Mail). Her fourth novel Disturbance, a psychological thriller about a lonely woman driven to the edge by rejection and betrayal, has just been published by Hodder & Stoughton.
