Thursdays at 6pm on zoom, hosted by National Women’s Register. Each month I interview a different women. These events are for members, but any woman can join for £25 a year, and that gives you access to lots of other things. For more about NWR, see Creative Projects

  1. Thoroughly enjoyed Marion’s Q & A session with a group of local readers, followed the next day by an inspirational workshop, presented in Marion’s generous and gentle way, think about why writing matters, and what we all have to share from our own life experience.
