Pratchett to appear at Winchester Writers' Conference

12th April 2010

Sir Terry Pratchett will be the keynote speaker at the Winchester Writers' Conference, Festival and Bookfair.

The author will join more than 60 novelists, playwrights, poets, agents and other insiders from the literary world at the University of Winchester-based event, which takes place from June 25th to 27th.

In a speech entitled Why Are You Listening To Me When You Should be at Home Writing?, Sir Terry will offer insights which he has gathered over the course of writing his 37 Discworld novels.

Barbara Large, founder and director of the conference, said she is 'looking forward' to receiving the writer at the event and described him as a 'master storyteller'.

'He has an incisive wit, is a keen observer of the fantastical and has the profound ability to entertain and inform us with his spectacular inventive comic satire,' she added.

Other authors confirmed for the event, which is in its 30th year, include Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Another Place to Die's Sam North, vegetarian cookery writer Rose Elliot and Village Teacher novelist Jack Sheffield.
