Sunny Salcombe

There are two events for writers coming up in Salcombe, Devon. At the first participants will be talking about me (well, they’ll be discussing one of my early stories) and at the second they get to talk to me and Anne Rainbow. If you’re local to the area, or want to treat yourself to a weekend away, we’d love to see you there.

  1. Hi Patsy - wonderful area ... and with a very good and valid reason for visiting. I hope you get lots of friends and local writers coming across to see you and gain some insight into your success and ability with stories. The Red Pen editing method sounds interesting too ... sadly Salcombe is a tad too far ... but I love Hope Cove - a delightful area ...

    Cheers Hilary
