Seabirds and Spiders


On Sunday at 12:45 I’m joining Cornwall-based authors, Clare Owen and Jackie Taylor at the Causley Festival, where we will be talking about Cornwall, writing fiction imbued with nature, and the role of seabirds in their writing.

We had flirted with the idea of meeting up somewhere in Cornwall for this, but instead it is online, so anyone can come. Free!

My contribution is to talk about why spiders matter to me, and more generally about publishing writers who live in geographically isolated places. Our individual sections are pre-recorded and then we’ll talk about writing, publishing, the climate crisis, and anything else that grabs us, in a Q& A that the audience is positively encouraged to join in.
