Join us in College for a day celebrating some of Trinity’s finest literary talent as we welcome back four outstanding alumni to talk about their work and the processes behind it.
How does it feel to sit down in front of the blank page? Where does the spark of creativity come from? How do you maintain the momentum following a previous success? Our speakers have all got words of advice to share from the chapters of their lives so far, so why not lose yourself in the pages of Trinity Writers 2019?
We are delighted to confirm the following four speakers: Daisy Goodwin (1980), Alex Michaelides (1996), Hugh Thomson (1979) and Dr Bee Wilson (1992).
Daisy Goodwin has a varied writing CV having published novels, a memoir, and written for television. Daisy will discuss her career to date and the pressure of writing a hit TV series.
Alex Michaelides will explore what makes us creative through the lens of how he became a writer, his experience of writing movies and the difference between film and novels.
Hugh Thomson is well-known for his travel writing, exploring South America and the UK. Hugh’s talk will range widely over some of his adventures and delve into what is required to plan and document his journeys.
Bee Wilson will give us a taste of what it is like to have been a food journalist for more than a decade, both historian and critic.
