Right off the bat there’s some awesome events. Oxford and Cambridge both have literary festivals. With Oxford having taken place earlier in April, while I was still being quarantined in a Heathrow hotel, I missed it this year. I’ll be there next year, promise. However, Oxford’s arch nemesis Cambridge has a litfest of their own: Their online Spring Festival is due to take place from tomorrow to the 25th of April. I missed Oxford and I’ll sadly miss this one too – online or not – there is just too much to get buttoned down for my productivity to kick into full gear (I missed a load of time with the move). But even a casual glance at the website cambridgeliteraryfestival.com shows I’m missing a great deal of insight, fun, and inspiration. George Saunders on Crafting Short Stories, John Preston on Robert Maxwell, nature writing, poetry, debut novelists, a special discussion about doggies, and much more. Action packed. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings (maybe a live winter festival?). But next year, I’m there!
