The 'Write Fantastic' launches tomorrow in London.
Wednesday 4th May 2005 sees The Write Fantastic launch in association with
The British Fantasy Society at Walkers of Holborn, 9 Norwich Street, London EC4, 7.30pm-10.30pm.
The Write Fantastic is an initiative by authors to introduce fantasy fiction to readers who have never tried the genre, and to show those who have drifted away the breadth and depth in current fantasy writing. The founding members are Sarah Ash, Chaz Brenchley, Mark Chadbourn, Juliet E McKenna, Stan Nicholls and Jessica Rydill.
Their work covers the gamut of fantasy writing from orcs and dragons, through high heroic swords and sorcery to reimagining of myth and history, and the magics of matter, mind and spirit.
Between them, they aim to offer resources to libraries, literary festivals, reader's circles, writers' groups and bookshop events. They can talk on their lives as writers, on fantasy and science fiction in general and on specific topics. They can also come together as panels for question and answer sessions, give readings and conduct workshops on creative writing, both in genre and in general.
