Words and Women

I encountered many inspirational writers during my time at the University of East Anglia, some of them – Paul Magrs, Bernardine Evaristo – there to teach, but others there to learn alongside me, such as Bel Greenwood. I read her children’s fantasy novel earlier this year and I look forward to the day when it’s in bookshops so you (and/or your kids) can enjoy it too. Anyway, Bel has remained in lovely Norwich, and she’s involved in various grassroots writing projects, both with kids and adults. I’m therefore happy to share details for a competition one of her groups is currently running for female writers living in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.
