I am thrilled to be able to say that I will be at the PowWow Festival of Writing this Sunday. If you don’t know what Pow Wow is, here’s the lowdown from the PowWow website:

13:45 Lunch break

Throughout the afternoon – readings of short fiction from Dan Powell

16:30 Tea break

17:00 Courttia Newland – playwright, literary activist and ‘one of Britain’s most important black novelists’

18:00 Ros Barber, an award-winning novelist, poet and authority on Shakespeare

The festival will run from noon through until 7pm on the 24th April 2016.

I will be getting down there for kick off so be sure to say hello if you’re about. Looking forward to sharing some old stories, some new stories and a couple in-between on the day.
