(Or why it’s not a great idea to use your long-awaited sabbatical to write your novel.)

Novelist and campaigner Stella Duffy will speak on her work as the Co-Director of Fun Palaces, the national organisation that campaigns for and supports grassroots engagement with all culture, her work in outreach for the newly-founded Women’s Equality Party and how all of this not-writing work feeds her work as a novelist, short story writer and playwright. More details will be on the BLF website in September.

Fun Palaces is taking place at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 3 and 4 October.
The Royal Literary Fund was established in 1790. It provides grants and pensions to writers in financial difficulty and place writers in universities to help students develop their writing.
