So you know how I’m broke, right? And you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I have a penchant for books, writers, journalism, creativity and words. So of course I want to run around the city listening to people talk about all of those things. But I want to do it for frreeee.
So here’s a little shortlist of all the Writer’s Festival events I’m planning on checking out. Yes, some of them are on at the same time. What you almost definitely didn’t know about me is that I’m actually Hermione and therefore am in possession of a TimeTurner. *
