I spoke for twenty minutes on The Power of Story. I also talked about my own writing journey, and answered several questions afterwards.

On Tuesday 6th March I spoke to the Coventry Writers Group at the Big Comfy Bookshop, Fargo Village, Coventry. What a lovely group of writers they are.Members of the Coventry Writing Group, Big Comfy Bookshop, Fargo Village, Coventry 6 March 2018 I thoroughly enjoyed giving my talk to them. There was much lively interaction and I learned a lot of new things too. We looked at classic story structure and the hero’s journey and we also discussed the highs and lows of the writing life. A fun, stimulating and illuminating evening!Margaret Mather and SC Skillman - Author Talk at meeting of the Coventry Writers Group, Big Comfy Bookshop, Fargo Village, Coventry 7 Mar 2018
