Writing about web page http://www.birminghambookfestival.org
I attended what I thought would be an opportunity to meet other writers, to chat with them and mingle in their midst, maybe swap contact details with them. I was a little disappointed to find that it was more of a structured event, with a talk and a Q&A session which in fact allowed little time to chat to others.
However, it was great to catch up with a couple of women I'd met yesterday in the Life Writing workshop. We had about ten minutes to have a drink, a quick chat and swap details. I guess that was something positive. It does leave me with the dilemma of the next networking opportunity will be. Maybe at the Birmingham Writers' meeting?
