Upcoming Events. Snoops is a Busy Bee!

I thought I’d share a few of my upcoming events. Hopefully keeping myself up-to-date, too!  I’m majorly involved in live appearances this month – and praying I don’t trip over my tongue.  Snoops is going to be a busy boy!

On Sat, 22 June, I’m at the Worcestershire Literary Festival 2103!
The festival features a showcase of writing talent from across the region in the beautiful hall of St Swithun’s Institute in the heart of Worcester. Entry is free! Up to twenty-five authors will be displaying their work and short performances will take place on the stage throughout the day. Refreshments available. 

On Weds, 26 June, I’m at the School of English, Birmingham City University Creative Writing Summer Show! The School of English, Birmingham City University Summer Show launches this year’s collection of new fiction, life writing, poetry and script, Paper and Ink on Wednesday 26th June 2013 from 6.00pm to 8.30pm at the Recital Hall, Birmingham Conservatoire, Paradise Place, Fletchers Walk, Birmingham, B3 3HG. I will be reading from my short ‘The Memory Box’, which has been selected as part of the Birmingham City University Anthology, and which now features as part of my latest novel ‘Learning to Love’ which has accepted for publication by Safkhet Publishing.
