Nothing makes a writer more nervous than reading their old work and forgotten drafts out loud in public. Dive into all the nostalgic, embarrassing, and awkward moments that marked these authors as young writers. Who knows, it might even leave you wanting to pen messy bits of writing of your own!

This programme includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
