HUDDERSFIELD’S growing troop of published authors has been sharing the secrets of success with budding writers.
Eight gathered at Holmfirth Library to share their experience of the long but rewarding road that faces those looking to get their works into print.
Speakers included Kevin Chandler, whose book Listening In focuses on a relationship therapist and, for lovers of popular historical romances, there was Lindsay Townsend, as well as Jack Dunhill, a reporter for 30 years who has just had his book Dancing with the Captain published.
Playwright Kate Griffin has enjoyed success on Radio 4 and Barry Hobson represented the non fiction world with his archaeological take on Roman toilets. Meg Plummer and KB Walker were also discussing their work.
Linda Williams, of Holmfirth Library, said: “We hope the event raised an awareness in the community that writers are beavering away and getting their work published.
“We’ve made sure to spread contact details so the writers can network with each other and pick up tips.”
