    Argh – I can’t make that but it sounds brilliant! Given the nature of the content, is there any chance this will be repeated electronically, in a closed chat-room, or example? I’d be happy to part with dosh for such an event – my lectures for MA in Creative Writing are conducted this way and my course fees aren’t cheap.

    Hi there – not sure to be honest – you’ll need to speak to Writer’s Hub who have programmed it – but that would be a great idea… Contact James through the Writer’s Hub website… Sophie

    Hi Nicola, James here from Writers’ Hub. We’re recording the event, so it should be available to listen to on Writers’ Hub from the first Monday in June.

    Further suggestion to chat-room idea, though I’m sure whoever sorts this will think of this anyway: need to have a sequence for people asking questions, otherwise if there are lots of questions, it can be difficult to work out which answer goes with which question.
