Winchester Writers’ Conference

I’ve received my pack for the Winchester Writers’ Conference and I’m looking forward to going there this coming weekend. I’ll be attending with several members of my Wimborne Writing Group and we are hoping to meet up at various times during Saturday. It’s usually a well attended, busy conference with excellent speakers and workshop leaders. The writing competitions are fun! In previous years I’ve won prizes for short stories and poems, also been short-listed and had commendations. This sort of recognition is encouraging and it is motivating. But I need to be careful not to spend all my time attending conferences and courses – it’s necessary to actually do some writing!
