Ali Bacon to Host Local Writer Workshop at Cotswold Edge Literary Festival
The Cotswold Edge Literary Festival is delighted to announce that Ali Bacon will be holding a Local Writers Workshop.
Ali Bacon was born in Fife and graduated from St Andrews University. She worked briefly in Oxford before qualifying as an academic librarian before moving to the Bristol area where she has lived ever since with her husband and (now grown-up) family.
Ali has been writing full-time for more than ten years and her very first novel won a prize in the A&C Black novel competition. Since then she has been exploring her Scottish roots, first of all with A Kettle of Fish, published in 2012, a contemporary novel set in her home town of Dunfermline, and now with In the Blink of an Eye, which takes place in Victorian Fife and Edinburgh. (Due to be published in April 2018)
Ali also writes short fiction in a variety of genres and she enjoys performing her work at local live events. She is a member of Writers Unchained of Bristol and has helped judge the highly regarded Stroud Short Stories event.
Her short fiction has been listed in competitions and published in several anthologies. In 2017 she won the Evesham Festival of Words Adult Short Story Competition with The Bird of Wax which forms part of In the Blink of an Eye.
She will head a group of local writers who will tell their story and answer your questions at the event to be held at Yate Library on Friday 22nd June.
