Julie's Quest

Hello, and welcome to my blog. My blog is about the trials and tribulations of writing, where we celebrate successes and commiserate our near misses. We tell it like it is here and will do our very best to help you on the road to being published and pick you up after the rejections (they will come!) Whether you are a professional or amateur writer you will find something useful here.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts and will visit again soon.

Happy Writing

Writing Festivals - Your Writing Will Thank You!

Ever fancied going to a writing festival but never had the time to do so? Or are they all too far away from you, or too expensive? Well, there is a solution. The National Association of Writing Groups is holding its 2014 Warwick Writing Festival 29th - 31st August at Warwick University (Coventry way).

I've been for the past two years; 2012 for the whole festival and 2013 as a day delegate and both times I learnt such a lot about writing and met some wonderful fellow writers. It is well worth attending as it's reasonably priced and is in a central location - the university complex. facilities and accommodation are brilliant and the quality of writing workshops/courses are second to none.

I'm about to book my place tomorrow and it would be great to see some fellow bloggers there too.
See www.nawg.co.uk for further details. You don't even have to be a member of NAWG to attend, although it is cheaper to attend if you are a member.

Looking forward to seeing you there if you're going!
