Putting Pen to Paper : Debut Writers Panel – Xanthi Barker, Francesca Reece and Hazel BarkworthEvent Website
Join us for a very special event where are bringing three young exciting debut writers together to share their journeys from ideation to publication, and their varying experiences and methods of writing that led to landing a book deal and seeing their words in print.
On a brilliant panel of exciting young debuts, we have Xanthi Barker whose wholly original memoir is a raw and beautiful account of her journey through grief for her father, poet Sebastian Barker. Joining Xanthi, we have debut Hazel Barkworth, winner of the Curtis Brown Creative Writing award, to talk on her experiences of studying creative writing at Oxford University and writing her debut novel alongside her full-time career in London. Joining them will be debut Francesca Reece on her brand-new novel Voyeur, inspired by her time spent living in Paris.
This event is hosted by Exeter Library which is one of Devon Libraries and part of Libraries Unlimited. Libraries Unlimited is a registered charity (1170092) with a mission to bring ideas, imagination, creativity, information and knowledge to people’s lives and communities.
