A Weekend in London

Last weekend, I was in London at the Romantic Novelists’ Association annual conference. Queen Mary University, Mile End Road played host to lectures, workshops and the chance to meet up with fellow writers and experts in the field.

Meeting up with friends and getting to talk shop all weekend was one of the highlights.

One of my favourite workshops was given by Julie Cohen on The Art of the Rewrite and it couldn't have been more timely. And as an added bonus, we all got to indulge our love of stationery!

The lovely ladies from Mills and Boon were also there to run a workshop on the essentials of writing for their series romances. Invaluable advice, direct from source.

And then there was the gala dinner. We all need sustenance sometime!

The Octagon Library at Queen Mary University.

All in all, a fun, entertaining weekend that was packed from start to finish and spent with friends. What more could anyone want?!
