    I had a great time at the festival. Not only did I meet some amazing and talented people, I made a few friends and returned home energised. Sitting down with others who share the struggle made a great change from the ‘real’ world where no one really ‘knows’ what a writer does. The sessions were really informative and everyone who attended will have learnt a lot. Can’t really say enough good things about it.
