Writer Christina Patterson

Different Journeys: 'Journeys In Pain (and Joy)'
📅 Friday 14 September 2018
York Medical Society Rooms, Stonegate
On 14 September acclaimed journalist and writer Christina Patterson will speak as part of the Laurence Sterne Trust’s Different Journeys series with her talk ‘Journeys in pain (and joy)’.

What do you do when you feel you’ve messed it all up and your friends seem to be doing just fine? This is the theme of The Art of Not Falling Apart, a mix of memoir and interviews about how we cope when life goes wrong. Hailed by The Times as “a beautifully written and uplifting memoir”, and by the Mail on Sunday as “a manual on how to survive in the 21st-century”, it blends genres by intertwining stories of people who have coped with loss and disappointment with snippets from Christina’s own “journey” from devastation to something like hope. Drawing on her background as a journalist, literary critic and former director of the Poetry Society, she talks about the challenge of finding, and subverting, forms to say the things we want to say. And how Sterne set us on a path we can all try to follow.

Christina Patterson is a journalist and broadcaster. A former columnist at the Independent, she now writes for The Sunday Times and The Guardian about society, culture, politics, books and the arts. She’s a regular commentator on radio and TV news programmes, and a regular guest on the Sky News press preview. Her first book, The Art of Not Falling Apart, was published by Atlantic in May. She has also contributed an essay to Body of Essays, published by Profile in September 2018.

WW1 Commemorations Yorkshire

York Remembers; WW1 Commemorations
📅 Monday 1 October 2018
Various Across The City
November 2018 marks 100 years since the Armistice which ended World War One. The city of York has developed a two month programme in response to this, York Remembers; Lifting The Shadow of The First World War.

York’s programme aims not only to reflect the tens of millions military and civilian casualties of the war but also the inspiration and courage it provoked among the combatants, supporters and victims through a diverse programme of exhibitions, talks, performances, screenings and more.

During October and November we are seeking to reflect on the events of World War One with the support of partners across this city and help strengthen our commitment to build peace in the future.

Self Publishing Workshop
📅 Saturday 3 November 2018
Venue: Mercure Fairfield Manor York
We're hosting a self-publishing workshop in York on 3rd November.

This valuable interactive workshop invites first-time authors or those who’ve always wanted to write their own book, to come along and learn how to self-publish your work in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

Indie authors K. L. Shandwick and Ava Manello, who between them have self-published over forty titles across a range of genres covering both fact and fiction, will demystify the self-publishing journey.

Sharing their experiences, both good and bad, what worked and what didn’t, the workshop will touch on the writing and marketing processes before going into detail on how to transform your manuscript into both digital and print formats and make it available for sale internationally, without breaking the bank.

Places are limited so book your ticket now.
