Grrrl Con 2017

Saturday, July 1, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I went to Grrrl Con 2017, a conference for women writers that was this year held in Manchester. I went last year in Edinburgh and was really happy that this year it was in Manchester which is close to me. This year the conference was three days and they were long and exhausting but so worthwhile and life-affirming. I wrote a zine for last year's con and I'm going to do so again, so I don't want to write too much here about it until I've got my thoughts together for my zine.

Anyway, here are the books I got at the conference. Jenn Ashworth was the first speaker and I was intrigued by the premise of this novel - told from the point of view of two ghosts so bought it from her and got it signed. The Quotidian is a Scottish magazine that my friend Lori has had a poem published in it, so she gave me a copy. The other two I bought from Desiree Reynolds, who is published in both. She led one of the workshops and I really liked her, plus these look like really interesting anthologies.

I'll have more about the con on my other blog so follow me over there (linked above) if you'd like to hear more!
