Another brilliant event held at the Quarterhouse for The Folkestone Book Festival 2016, there have been some super workshops with many talented people this year. I have always wanted to write some travel articles but the few I have written were rejected so I realised I must be doing something very wrong. Let’s hope John has taught me well and the next one gets through! I will definitely be letting him know. One of the things he said was to keep it tight so maybe that is my problem as I do tend to want to include so much, I am looking forward to trying all the tips out he gave us.
John delivered a brilliant workshop with handouts that prove useful to look back on, not many do that at these events I have noticed. From a teaching point of view John ticked the most boxes out of the workshops I have been to the last couple of years. The two hours went far too quickly as usual but at the end John gave us a copy of his latest book which I thought was a very generous gift.
