Recently published author Sarah Davis, from Armley, will be appearing at this year’s Ilkley Literature Festival Fringe.
She will be interviewed by one of the event organisers, along with Sarah Connell, another debut writer, from Wakefield.
Both writers will discuss their books and their journeys to publication and will be happy to share their experiences and tips with budding new authors.
Sarah Davis’ book ‘Baby Daze,’ was recommended in ‘Mother & Baby’ magazine’s ‘three of the best funny books’ feature.
It is a collection of relatable, short poems reflecting the rollercoaster of parenting a new born. It’s been described as ‘perfect for new mums’ and ‘like a rhyming new mummy diary.’
Since ‘Baby Daze’ came out, Sarah has been talking about her early parenting experiences with new mums and mums to be at events around the city, including at Mothercare and Mamas & Papas.
Sarah Connell’s novel, ‘Whenever,’ is short form literary fiction about the city where she lives.
In her novel, the city is referred to as ‘Warmfield,’ but Wakefield residents will recognise many local references.
The two authors have very different writing styles and routes to publication, so it should make for an interesting discussion.
This is a free event with the opportunity to meet and chat to both authors on Sunday 6th October 3-4pm at the Ilkley Arts Studio, next to the Manor House. No ticket required.
