What can I say?
*Brilliant location. It was my first time in Greenwich and I loved it. Definitely a location to visit as a tourist. Already added to my list. Of course the superb hot weather added to the blissful views over the Thames.
*Brilliant company with familiar friends and making new friends with fellow writers who I have only ever spoken to online – so apologies if I spent a lot of time peering at your name badge and trying to connect it with the small photo on your blog.
*Brilliant workshops, presentation and making connections with other writers over coffee and food. What was particularly nice was the fact that there was enough room in the courtyards to find space and light away from the meeting rooms.
One particular highlight was discovering that there was a very good reason why wonderful music was wafting out from the open windows on the upper floors of the splended building next to ours – Trinity College School of Music is based there! Superb.
Strolling along in the late afternoon sunshine with live music drifting across the courtyard was just magical.
Lots of other authors are blogging about their own highlights but it truly was a very special conference for me.
I had a blast.
