Essex Book Festival 2020: Local Authors’ Day 7th March

I am looking forward to hosting a discussion session at Chelmsford Library, 10.00-11.30, Saturday 7th March 2020, entitled ‘Using Familiar Landscapes to Inspire Fictional Locations’.

The session is described as follows:

‘An author-led discussion session to show and discuss how familiar features in the Essex countryside can be used as the inspiration for creating new and imagined landscapes in fiction writing. Local author Owen W Knight will illustrate, using maps, photographs and readings, how the geography, history and folklore of the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation and its surroundings became the basis of a hidden, dystopian world. Attendees will be encouraged to participate and to share their own ideas and writing experiences.’

The full programme for the day is listed here.
