On the 26th November 2016, The Oldbury Writing Group attended Dudley library to listen to a fascinating talk that was being given by four established authors (Nell Dixon, Gemma Todd, Elizabeth Hanbury, and Brenda Read-Brown). They gave invaluable advice on the subject of writing, talking at length for approximately fifteen minutes each on various aspects of the theme, including publishing (conventional, self, and vanity).

The authors also talked about perseverance, motivation, the varying attitudes, foibles and idiosyncrasies of different publishers (US and UK), and the labyrinthine minefield, (otherwise known as copyright). They also spoke with obvious enthusiasm about their own individual areas of literary achievement (Poetry, historical, romantic, and fantasy/horror fiction).

After an interlude for refreshments, an absorbing question and answer session took place, giving any budding author the opportunity to ask advice and take notes.
