WoW Work Experience: Blog by Holly Millne

My couple of days working at Writing on the Wall has been an insightful experience as to what working in a small office might be like, as I have never been in one before. The office environment is friendly but quiet, however there are many things that go on outside the office to take part in. For example: one morning I went to Leamington primary school to hand out books of the children’s work, where they had written stories and designed comic strips about super heroes. This is just one of the many project that they do at Writing on the Wall and it was a great experience as I got to see what sort of events go on outside the office and see how much enjoyment the children got out of it as well.

Andy Redsmith: Breaking the Lore

WoW sat down with Andy Redsmith who is releasing his novel Breaking the Lore with Canelo in spring next year. Andy was a finalist in Pulp Idol 2017. 

Hi Andy, tell us a little bit about your book! (Or as much as you’re allowed to!)
Breaking the Lore is a fantasy crime comedy. This might not even be a genre – it is now! I have deliberately mixed things up in order to produce something a bit different. It is intended to appeal to people who enjoy well-constructed fantasy that doesn’t always take itself too seriously. Having said that, the draft has been enjoyed by beta readers of all ages, both sexes, and who read a variety of different genres; so I think it has a lot of crossover appeal too.

Rest in Peace Linda Meagor

We are so, so sad at hearing the news of Linda Meagor’s death, a sadness that we know is being shared across the whole of the artistic and cultural community in Merseyside. We first met Linda in late 2014, when she was working for Culture Liverpool, and was helping us find a venue for one of our festival events. We were struck by her enthusiasm, commitment and shining personality. From then on, we – I say we – all the WoW team past and present, collectively and individually, became friends with Linda; how could you not be friends with her? She had a unique ability to be knowledgeable about the arts, an astute and highly organised organiser, and always retain her sense of balance, never ‘losing it’ as is so often the case when we’re all under the usual insane pressures of festival and event delivery, and keep her sense of fun, with her own great laugh.
