LETTERS From Crispin Keith, Brighstone:
I would like to thank the organisers of the IW Literary Festival for putting on a brilliant event last weekend.
The sessions were vibrant, varied and full and I enjoyed and was informed by all of the ones I attended.
I want to thank the festival for nurturing local writers too. I am just starting my new career as a writer, with three novels out on Amazon Kindle, but none in print. Yet, I was invited to speak alongside a brilliant established novelist, Isabel Ashdown, and given a prime slot and was interviewed by Tina Griffith, who had read my book and thought hard about it.
To share a Green Room with writers like Kate Mosse and Louis de Bernieres and to meet top publishers is so important for new writers.
Thanks also to the warm and large audience at our session for making it a wonderful experience for me.
