The September Group 2012 session will take place on Wednesday 17th September, 7pm-9pm, at Blackwell’s Bookshop.
They say that the best thing you can do if you want to write well is to read.
The idea of this session is for us to inspire each other with readings and recommendations from writers who we think that writers in the Group would do well to read. You can select writers/books simply because they demonstrate great writing, or because they exemplify something specific – cracking dialogue, spot-on description, believable characterisation, impressive pace, blood-curdling terror, whatever you wish to share!
We will run the evening in a similar way to our critique evenings, with participants giving readings from their chosen books and then a small amount of discussion after each reading. Feel free to bring along a few suggestions if you wish, even if you don’t want (or there isn’t time) to read from all of them. We’ll create a reading list during the evening which we’ll send out to all after the event. Should be a fascinating voyage of discovery!
