EMWF Panel: The Writing Life

Hosted by Eden Mills Writers’ Festival

As a booklover, you’ve probably wondered about the authors who transform ideas into novels. What inspires them? Who reads their first drafts? Where do they find the voices of their characters? In the final adult event of EMWF’s 2021 series, join Omar El Akkad, Jael Richardson, Nicholas Ruddock and Kim Thúy as they provide a peek behind the curtain, giving us the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the writing life.

Presenters: Omar El Akkad (What Strange Paradise), Jael Richardson (Gutter Child), Nicholas Ruddock (Last Hummingbird West of Chile) and Kim Thúy (Em)

The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival celebrates the power of words – whether written, spoken or signed – to ignite our imaginations and reveal worlds and ideas beyond our own experience. We aim to encourage a culture of reading in today’s media-obsessed world by providing a venue for established and emerging writers to meet with their readers and to engage new fans.
