A workshop to inspire

ArtsFest week in Lyme Regis, and a new event for this year was the Writing for Publication workshop. Run by author and journalist Maria McCarthy, it was packed with interesting info. The venue: Hix Oyster and Fish House, with plenty of coffee, teas and breakfast goodies. Maria herself was very engaging: full of positive energy as she generously shared her experiences in the journalism and author spheres, with wide-ranging tips on resources, pitches, agent approaches and a whole lot more. Take a look at her website here. I came away energised, which is such a great feeling. Especially as I enter the next phase of my writing process.

A few notes I’ve made as a result of the welcome boost:

– keep writing what I want to write

– enter more competitions

– find time to pitch

– create a Facebook page (actually do it)

– start tweeting (kind people have said they will follow me)
