A WORLD OF DISCOVERY; SCIENCE FICTION, HORROR AND FANTASY PANEL

ADAM NEVILL, ANDREW BANNISTER AND JOHN JARROLD (CHAIR)

We hope you enjoyed this panel chaired by John Jarrold, ex-publisher of Orbit, and Literary Agent for the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror genres. He was joined by Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual, currently airing on Netflix. Adam’s latest folk-horror thriller, THE REDDENING was out in October 2020. He was also joined by Newark resident and Science Fiction author Andrew Bannister, his latest book, ACCORDING TO KOVAC, was published in 2020 by NewCon Press. It was a fascinating cross genre discussion.

IN CONVERSATION WITH CATHY BRAMLEY AND RACHAEL LUCAS

INTERVIEWED BY ELLEN LAVELLE

We hope you enjoyed this interview by Ellen Lavelle with Nottinghamshire author Cathy Bramley talking about her wonderful new book: The Patchwork Family, that melted all our hearts and made us smile during lockdown. Cathy is the Sunday Times Top Ten best-selling author of The Lemon Tree Café and she was joined by Rachael Lucas, who chatted about her heart-warming romantic comedies, including The Telephone Box Library.

FOSSEWAY WRITERS DISCUSS THEIR COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS

Fosseway Writers are Newark’s local writing group and last year produced a collaborative novel, Burning Old School Ties: a unique writing project by eight authors writing eight intertwined tales within one story about a school reunion. This year they are launching The Brinwade Chronicles, a collection of Gothic short stories centred around a fictional village close to Newark, written by an expanded coven of thirteen authors. Nick Rowe and a few other writers from the group shared their ideas, discussed key features and discussed how they help each other in collective and individual projects.
