“Even if I couldn’t sell a book, I’d still be writing.”
The Noirwich Crime Writing Festival continues with Anita Terpstra joining us from Leeuwarden in the Netherlands to discuss her crime writing. Talking with Flo Reynolds on the National Centre for Writing’s The Writing Life podcast, Anita reveals her path to becoming published and how keeping the faith and continuing to write are essential. It’s an inspiring and positive conversation.
Check out yesterday’s pod with Paddy Richardson if you missed it and keep an eye on your podcast feed for our Hercule Poirot special this Sunday, featuring Sophie Hannah and Dr Mark Aldridge. Noirwich 2020 is packed full of amazing live videos, including appearances from Attica Locke, Oyinkan Braithwaite and Olivier Norek. Full details over on the programme page.
