A draft programme of talks and events for Hay is already waiting for you at the Hay Festival site. There you can get a feel for what’s happening over the ten days (May 21-31) and, believe me, there’s lots on. Speakers include Clive James, Julia Donaldson, Heston Blumenthal, Gerald Scarf, Stephen Fry, Jeanette Winterson, Tony Curtis, Anthony Horowitz , Dylan Moran (I have to admit to having a bit of a crush on him) and many, many more.
The full programme will be available (for booking online and via the old the dog’n’bone) from 20 April.
And I’m there too! My workshop ‘How to Get Published’ is on Tuesday 26 May at 10am. For £25 you’ll get friendly advice on topics such as how and why you should research your market, how and where to get yourself read, how best to approach publishers or agents, and how to put together that all-important submission. Oh and if I remember, I’ll tell you where there’s a really good ice-cream shop.
Warm wishes, Jo
