The University of Portsmouth is collaborating with Portsmouth Bookfest and Portsmouth Writers’ hub, to bring to CCI the Guide to Victorian Sex.
With a strong literary history including Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and HG Wells, Portsmouth is a wondrous place for fiction. Portsmouth BookFest continues the exciting creative writing tradition, hosting exciting events across the city featuring popular and accessible authors.
In addition to the fantastic line-up of Portsmouth BookFest 2016 and Portsmouth Writers’ Hub, Adele Parks, multi-million bestselling author, will be coming to Portsmouth to discuss the art of writing.
What makes for good travel writing? How do you get into the profession? What practical, ethical and political challenges come with the job? Who are the great travel writers and what can we learn from them? Can an outsider ever fairly and accurately represent a given place, society or culture?
Portsmouth Fairy Tales for Grown-Ups opens Pompey Book Fest 2014 with a coruscating evening of author readings to celebrate the paperback launch of this collection of new Portsmouth stories, available for pre-order now.
