Event description
The Riff Raff is an event for lovers of new writing and aspiring authors looking to gain insight about how to write and get published.

About this Event

About this Event

If you're currently writing a book, this is the event for you! We hear from five debut authors with a recently-published book - they discuss their journeys to publication, the obstacles they overcame to make it happen and offer up insider knowledge that will help you to get there too.

This is your chance to:

* Hear new work from exciting debut authors first.

* Seek inspiration for your own masterpiece.

* Discover how each author got published.

* Interrogate authors who recently made the leap onto Step One of that daunting publishing ladder.

* Snap up signed copies of books.

* And, most importantly, to make friends with people who understand that trying to write a book is HARD.

****************************************************************

The evening will be hosted by: Amy Baker - Riff Raff Founder, host of The Riff Raff Podcast and author of Miss-Adventures: A Tale of Ignoring Life Advice While Backpacking Around South America.

Our line-up for the evening includes:

Stephanie Scott, author of What's Left of Me is Yours - a gripping debut set in modern-day Tokyo and inspired by a true crime, which charts a young woman's search for the truth about her mother's life--and her murder.

Ben Halls, author of The Quarry - a collection of inter-connected stories about a group of men living on The Quarry Estate in West London, revealing the complex inner lives of individuals whose voices are too often non-existent in fiction.

Rosanna Amaka, author of The Book of Echoes - narrated by the spirit of an enslaved African, this is a searing debut about hope, redemption and the scars of history.

Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City - a Windrush-era crime novel that shows new arrivals have always been the prime suspects. But, also, that there is always hope.

Hazel Barkworth, author of Heatstroke - a darkly gripping, thought-provoking novel of crossed boundaries, power and betrayal, that plays with expectations at every turn.
