As I write, the top 12 threads on this part of the forum display 12 different names. As one of the hosts, I find this very heartening. I would like to thank everyone who has recently contributed threads and posts. In some cases, I have deliberately held back from adding further comment but I have found them all interesting to read.
Having said as much, this thread will probably sink without trace.
I would be interested to hear of any good and bad experiences at literary festivals. Which ones would you recommend and which were disappointing? What are your practical tips for enjoying them to the full? This website looks quite good to me as a starting place for anyone considering attending one. Are there any other useful websites?
