I’ve just been looking through old blog posts I’ve written and came across this one, written in 2012 for Hay 25. It was published on the same page as one by John Finnemore, who is one of my writing heroes. Even though I didn’t encounter him in the green room or the bookshop tent there (damn), I had a wonderful, wet time and I think the blog captures it.
If only all writing experiences were like this. It’s enough that some are. Even in the rain. http://blog.hayfestival.org/index.php/2012/06/sophia-bennett-on-hay-25/
