Sceptre Loves - Creative Writing Seminar with Rowan Hisayo Buchanan

Waterstones TCR are inviting short story lovers and amateur writers everywhere to a live creative writing seminar, hosted by Sceptre, the literary imprint of Hodder & Stoughton, and Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless like You.

This open forum event is designed to give aspiring writers a chance to speak directly with one of the most established literary houses in the world and an acclaimed author about the writing process - how writers pitch, edit, develop and ultimately release their work.

The event is also supporting the Sceptre Loves Short Story Competition - Sceptre are looking for a short story based on any sort of love that will give a writer the chance to have their work published in the paperback edition of How Much The Heart Can Hold!

This event is free, so turn up, grab a glass of wine and take note!
