I’m hoping to be joined by all kinds of lovely people, but I’ve started by asking storytellers, because this is the closest I’ll get to my own Canterbury Tales.
This page is likely to change quite a lot as the people I ask accept (if they do). Keep scrolling down to read more.
Six pilgrims (random: refresh page for more):
South Downs Way Ranger. Keeping us safe
Hoofing it from Lewes
Zipping from Isle of Wight to join us at Winchester
Poet, and general whiz
SInger of heartbreaking talent. Good walker
Joined in northwest London, with us from kick-off
I’m hoping to lure these three, who came with me on a half-day authors pilgrimage last year (in real life, less than two metres apart):
I haven’t asked two of them yet, so it’s a bit cheeky to put this picture up. Sorry gang – this is a work in progress.
I’m asking a handful of terrific writers whose work I saw come together on Arvon writing retreats that I co-ran. I’ve no idea if they’ll balk at the idea of reading their work in progress on camera for all to see. Come on chaps! You can do it!
And I’d really like it if you joined me. The more the merrier, frankly. Not that I’m aiming always for merriment.
Tears, laughter, all the good stuff.
If Chaucer had it in his Canterbury Tales, I want it in mine.
