This IS me (by schwitters)Default

Litfest!

Bromley is having a Literary Festival (find me a town in England that isn't, these days) arranged by a new local business, Acorn Independent Press. Obviously this is of huge interest to me, so I spent much of Saturday on the fourth floor of the library.

There are an awful lot of aspiring writers in Bromley. Of my fellow-students, one had had meetings with three literary agents but none of them had ended up representing her and another had actually got an agent but not been placed with a publisher. This was slightly depressing.

I didn't emerge from the library until 4PM, by which time I was pretty hungry. Luckily there was a man on the High Street giving away pizza outside a new restaurant. Bromley rocks!
