Taking off to FLY
I’m taking a trip down memory lane this week with a visit to Norwich to take part in FLY 2017, the Festival of Literature for Young People. The festival, now in its fifth year, is organised and hosted by the University of East Anglia, where I took my Creative Writing MA back in 1993-94.
That was a special year for me, as I got married and wrote what was to become my first published novel, Acts of Revision, so I’m always glad of an excuse to revisit Norwich and the UEA campus. This is my second time on the programme at FLY, where I’ll be giving a talk and reading to around 200 teenagers from local schools and leading a creative-writing workshop.
This year’s festival runs from July 10-14 and includes a wide range of events and a great line-up of authors – Frank Cottrell Boyce, Clare Furniss, Andy Briggs, Jo Cotterill and Cliff McNish, to name just a few. For full details please click on this link to the FLY website.
